The Fourth of July means different things to everyone. For Brian, who is inherently distrustful of fireworks, the holiday is for grilling out and enjoying the musical stylings of America’s greatest rock and roll band.
And while I certainly love a good cookout, for me, the holiday really centers on blowing stuff up.
nerdier more scientific among you, the above video features John A. Conkling, Ph.D., author of “The Chemistry of Pyrotechnics, Basic Principles and Theory.” Here, he outlines the chemistry behind our favorite rockets.

So, however you celebrate today, please have a safe and happy holiday. We’ll be back tomorrow with our regularly scheduled programming.
