Its nearly Bonfire night - what will you be doing?

Recommended Posts

In a science programme I saw they recreated the same amount of gunpowder. It was in the cellars remember, the blast would have levelled most of the area and certainly killed the king and many more people.

like a modern day airbomb then?

Dont say it cant be done.

These guys managed a similar thing

:hihi:

 

I think those pictures must be accentuated somehow.

If I was on a desk allowing folk on a flight, non of those would pass.

To a man they look as if they are on a trip of some kind, and I dont mean an accompanied walk from the local home.

An airbomb is not the same thing.

It explodes, and sprays petrol vapour over the entire area, then milliseconds later an incendiary ignites, sets off the petrol vapour, and all the oxygen is burned, everywhere.

It would have destroyed London at that time completely, and every living creature in the area woud have died of either burns or suffocation.

 

Gunpowder does not require oxygen to burn, it creates its own from the chemicals that compose it.

Just my thought.

About a quarter of a mile destroyed.

How big was London at Guy Fawkes' time?

The commercial and government centre would not be much bigger than that.
