Explosions A-Go-Go

On December 6, 1917, a ship loaded with muntions exploded in the harbor at Halifax, Novia Scotia, killing more than 1900 people. It was the largest man-made explosion of the pre nuclear age. One man, William Becker was lucky: He was ina rowboat about 300 feet away from the ship when it exploded, propelling him 1,600 yeards--the length of 16 football fields-- across the harbor. He swam to safety and lived until 1969.
