Asked by emojiexplosions to Huma, Jack, Lucy, Miranda, Peter on 18 Nov 2016.
I’m not entirely sure what you mean. The most energetic explosion that humans can currently create on Earth is probably from a fusion bomb, which works by merging light elements into heavier ones to release huge amounts of energy in the process.
There is a really fun explosion that you can make yourself. Ask your parents to help you set this up outside so that you don’t get in trouble for making mess!
Take a big bottle of of diet coke and stand it up with the lid off. Take a 3 or 4 Mentos (the minty sweets) and carefully drop them into the bottle. Stand back!
The mentos react with the coke and cause a fizzy explosion.
You can look it up on youtube too.
