I loved blowing stuff up as a kid, but maybe biggest was chucking
half-sticks of dynamite off the bluffs in Mexico. These guys
at Site 300 are really out there. Among the technology they've done:
o bombs that will travel 6 miles per second,
o bombs that detonate with a precision of as little as a billionth of a second
o bombs that generate up to 500k atmosphered
o built a material 60% more explosive than TNT (LLM-105)
The neatest part, however, is the LifeGuard sniper protection system.

Talk about a clever use of technology.
