"For armor firearms and ammunition also saw dynamite blunders and big red accident. Thanks blueprints sheds a a train full of sand paper yet. A plus by the way to save on their transporting costs. They just start all the gunpowder right there at the factory until they needed it like texas city disaster. We don't actually know the cause of this explosion sublimated shirt but eta certain point of stacking gunpowder on top of gunpowder or ammonium nitrate on top oil refineries or whatever that becomes the 'cause we we actually do have a pretty detailed account of the explosion though from a temporary government proclamation with foreboding title of official notice of heavenly calamity. So i'm going to quote this bit from the wikki. But i'll replace the chinese units of measure with their metric equivalents Would also like to know if we know the angles of stuff as well one thing. We do a mentioned angles. One time at one time all walking guy. Thank you stupid nerd. Nobody cares about angles. Asks can reach an angle off the top shelf for me the quote. The explosion reportedly took place in the late. Morning of may thirtieth sixteen twenty-six. The sky was clear but suddenly a loud roaring rumble was heard coming from the northeast os specifically i. It depends on where you are. Whatever gradually reaching the south west of the city followed by bush with shaking of houses. Then a bright streak of flesh containing a light followed in a huge bang that shattered the sky and crumbled. These occurred the sky. Turn dark and everything within about a two kilometers. Vicinity was utterly obliterated. The streets were unrecognisable littered with fragmented pieces and showered with falling roof tiles. The force of the explosion was so great that large trees were uprooted and throw to the opposite side of the city and a three metric ton stone lion was thrown over the city wall and quote from top right to bottom left and so now the official notice goes on to talk about how far away you could hear the explosion and feel the trembling but since most of us aren't super familiar with seventeenth century chinese geography. And since there's no way in hell i'm going to pronounce the place correctly. I'm just going to say that. Like a hundred and fifty kilometers away. People were going. What the fuck was that. All the volcanoes in the ring of fire holdup judges scorecards. Pretty good one last bit from the wiki article summary of the official notice quote the grounds around the immediate vicinity of jesus. Fucking christ. what's wrong with. Wiki editors the ground around the city. The ground around. Aso's now you're done you can go smoke a bowl. Stop with your verbose bullshit. The ground around the immediate vicinity of wang gong. Chang armory the epicenter of the explosion had sunk in for over twenty one feet but there was a notable lack of fire damage. The clouds over the epicenter were also reported to be strange. Some little like messy strands of silk somewhere multicolored while some looked like a black being g. That's kind of mushroom that grow to the site of trees there. So i think it's safe to just sabine mushroom cloud for that one. The death toll from this thing was enormous. While there's no concrete number estimates at the time were something in the vicinity of twenty thousand people and a estimate of the property damage. But it's like it's a city. I don't know much about explosions and things but i think when this guy has to take some time afterwards to get shit together now sky shadow on. Yeah we need a new guys. That's sweep up the fucking sky on. He's a ladder and a lot of ways. This explosion was actually the ming dynasty's chernobyl right so the late main dynasty was already shaky because a regional conflict a series of natural disasters related to the little ice age. Love that movie there have been a number of riots and rebellions among the peasantry leading up to this and then this disaster comes into provides several nails for the emperor's coffin. First of all. It happens right next to the capital. So among the casualties are fucked on a government ministers and bureaucrats who aren't exactly going to be able to train their replacements now. How one of the casualties was the seven month old crown prince so the people who governed the empire and the facilities they used to do it or level at the same time. They're armory just lost. Its largest weapons depot and its largest weapons manufacturing facility so but more important than all the physical shit the the empire lost was the loss of the mandate of heaven so the chinese imperial system is based on the belief that the reason the emperor's elevated is because the gods like him the most he has the mandate of heaven. But when terrible shit happens it's interpreted as the god's giving up on that emperor right like telling people no you've got to change out. We don't like this guy and blowing your whole capital city. The fuck up is about as clear a message. The gods could set all right. We've found the problem so go ahead and make another giant i'll of bomb dust but with a godly out. A good politician could have spun that explosion. It was just god given us a high five guys won miss the days. When violently fucking up your own capital city was universally held his roof. That you goddamn all right. So all of that shit combined with the massive cost of rebuilding the city proved a blow that the emperor could never really overcome. The ming dynasty. Would last another eighteen years before falling apart altogether up now like i said we don't actually know the cause of that explosion. I i mean the contemporary efforts to explain it are pretty thick with superstitious speculation and a lot of the stuff we have today is tainted by exaggeration but the most obvious cope obviously is accidental. Ignition right like a mishandled open flame a spark and electrostatic discharge or even intentional sabotage have all been suggested all right so we ruled out icicle stabbing good but dealers bring up is because it's also possible that the gunpowder factory was just an innocent victim of a different explosion. I actually don't know how plausible it is. But according to the wikipedia article description and magnitude of the explosion is more consistent with a meteor exploding in mid air than an accidental gunpowder. Ignition and superstition. Or no. I feel like when the heavens themselves start.

"At noon. Marito's getting cold is twelve. Oh four guys. Unless fiend now at this point the ideas floated the on more the ship and get it as for the dacas possible. Thank you this. Seems like the right thing to to end the hindsight knowing how this turns out makes it seem like a moral buchan imperative. That'd be said there's a solid reason not to set out to sea as well first of all what should we. The doctor can't get firefighters on and off the ship right so not only. Are you cutting yourself off from reinforcements. You're also condemning anybody still on the ship to die if they can't get the fire under control plus given the size of the eventual explosion. It wasn't going to matter much. Okay what the things i love and kinda hate about our podcast is that we are now guaranteed to get an email from a guy who's grandpa died at the furthest hossa point of explosion. Tell him no. he's an asshole and whatever that guy was probably the guy having the roman candle fight aboard the us. That's boom. i'll see you at raise. Your grandpa who is just on the other side in galveston and maybe all right so just before nine am. The captain makes a really bad decision. He orders his men to steam the hold and that means exactly like what it sounds like it meets right you flood the hold was steamed deprive the fire of oxygen either. You're going to say he made the bad decision of being the captain bad. Thanks yeah got to clarify okay. But so so the idea here. Is you get rid of the oxygen. You get rid of the fire. But ammonium nitrate is an oxidizer does. Yep so what does that. What does that mean to you. Oh it's where you take all the nickels that are inside the socks. And then you may miss ryan ori so the idea. That does fuck all the help. Actually i didn't fuck the steam hot right. So you're actually increasing the starting temperature of all your highly reactive cargo. In fact according to the wiki the st may have contributed to the fire by converting the ammonium nitrate to nitrous fucking oxide. And where should i start these magic wands that. Turn anything into a nuclear war okay. I'll put them next to the match. All right talk yeah. i like that. Noah's mind that last line of his ask a moment like whoa not nitrous oxide way. More bad we all know that. That's just fun. You get that wom. You are going to get a lot while while before this. Yeah all right so now. The ship is burning out of and control the steam pressure inside the ship blows the hatches open and smoke starts billowing out and because the smoke is tinged with nitrous dioxide fumes. It's a weird yellow orange color that starts attracting spectators now public safety announcement here. If you ever see a giant fire your first thought is wow. That's a weird color. If your job is to put that motherfucker out from what is much distance between you and that virus you have time to put their but unfortunately a lot of people would deport reacted the exact opposite way and just lined up along the shore a seal. The pretty colors. Okay so. I think we can all agree. That victim blaming is bad. So pass i do not pass because if we ever make a citation needed bingo guard they were kind of asking for it. Is the center. Goddamn now at this point. People start to notice that the water around the ship is boiling. The ones slashes against the hull was immediately vaporized. The hull itself is starting to bulge from the pressure. On the steam from the steam inside and then it seems like a bad sign. No i don't know much about nitrous oxide. Skipping across the water like an ice cube on a hot grill. Fucking biblical boiling. There's a next step here. Yeah well that next step happens at nine twelve. Am when the whole fucking thing goes tits up. The vessel detonated in one of the largest non nuclear manmade explosions. In earth's the blast produced a four and a half meter shockwave that was detectable for a hundred miles in any direction in the span of a second more than a thousand buildings are completely leveled to sightseeing airplanes nearby. Were blown out of the fucking sky. They were blown out of the sky and then more up into the sky. The other direction plays on the that were blown into the sky. It was kind of a weird. I the explosion ever juggled. Give it a break. We can't cut your break. You go up. we go right now. Ten miles away from the ship. Your window shattering. Over six thousand tons of the ship's steel are hurled into the air summit supersonic speeds and it rained down on the city along with bales of burning twine from the ship's cargo per second while it was all up in the air. That was the world's largest ball of twine for the guy who got killed by burning twine. Because you know he was trying to get saint peter to scratchy out burning twine and put explosive. Ruining twins. not gonna get me late up here now. The smell it's it was so cool man. So i okay. I'm going to be honest here without video. It's really hard to get your head around the scale of this explosion but a similar sized explosion actually was captured on film last year. In beirut at you almost certainly seen that video. The explosion is remarkably similar to the beirut explosion was caused by a fire in a warehouse storing twenty seven hundred tons of ammonium nitrate but as terrible as that accident was a two hundred and twenty plus people died in it. I'm in no way trying to minimize it in beirut it was pretty much just the one explosion. Texas city was just getting started in addition to leveling a bunch of chemical plants and catching a shift on a refineries and chemical tanks on fire. The explosion also caught a bunch of the other ships that were still docked on fire and among them was a ship called the high flare which was carrying more ammonium nitrate the because we actually literally would have been safer parking next to the uranium ship for spot away from the uranium more neutral. One of the tragedy would take place the day before the big dynamite right at this point the whole areas devastated and a bunch of people were killed including all but one member of the twenty eight man texas city volunteer fire department but the survivors on the high flirted hero at work trying to cut from her anchor and get her the fuck away from shore unfortunately by this point the whole fucking port is a maze of twisted debris it should so. There's no way that they're going to get it out. Fifteen hours after the grandcamp that needed the hi. Flier exploded ratings. Get more flaming wreckage ramping. Up the death toll that much. Further and setting ship called the ss wilson be keen on fire which was also carrying nitrate. We should really sail away. Because you know we're full of of nitrate. But i.

Hi cindy is mad at this city at the few years ago at the patriot. Only pizza party also. Yeah she's an amazing photographer actually hayes and he's also got a lotta shit to photograph but right so so cindy suggested that we do the texas city disaster and i liked the story interested. There was quite enough to fill an entire episode. So i decided to toss it another big ass explosion to round it out Seasonal knows including my poop breaks. Podcast again telling me. He's not allowed. He's not allowed. I will do no such thing. The world needs to know. About how many fucking poop yes rights. Tell you what. I'll stop including poop breaks in the podcast when you stop including poop breaks no deal so if i asked you what the deadliest industrial accident in american history was. You may not know enron nope if you're on the right track though. But if i guess which stated took place in i feel like almost everybody would guess right because tech was right about that part because texas is nothing but a giant pile of tinder and unregulated explosives in it always has been and that brings us to texas city in nineteen forty seven all right so texas city is just south of houston on the water. There's your problem. Well yes it is exactly you. Nothing has ever happened near use. No no in fact. It's a major port just across the water from galveston. The site of the deadliest natural disaster in american history. That's just a fucked curse place to be so. Our story begins at the port. On april sixteenth of nineteen forty seven aboard a us built french. Registered ship called the ss grandcamp the grand camps cargo about two thousand three hundred tonnes of ammonium nitrate. I think i'm starting to see the problem. That would have been bad enough all on. Its own right. But it's docked at a port filled with oil tankers next to a shoreline filled with oil refineries. So you can imagine how this is gonna go super bad. Abbas this full of match heads squeeze it next to the train car filled with the sandpaper beginning to explain texas's first state motto exits. What could go wrong did have to change. Yeah no the Licensed points just kept getting longer and longer and longer so it should be noted that half houses they are about industrial regulation in texas. Today it was actually worse in nineteen forty seven in fact even the details of how the ammonium nitrate stored sound like. They're begging for a citation needed episode. Apparently it was transported stored at high temperatures because what that increase to the chemical activity prevented moisture shaking. Oh good yeah. No 'cause we'd you're storing thousands of tons of high explosives you want a lot of chemical activity on moisture. Aching is dangerous guys. let's Get some iron newton there curve. Okay safety safety so also by the way. Apparently the crew on the fucking ship was smoking. I mean before the big explosion right. Let's just smoking cigarettes. I mean i'm not sure if they were allowed to smoke or if people just look the other way but given the nineteen forty seven this of all of this. I'm assuming they were just ashtrays neck guys when you flick your cigarettes and then walk away in slow motion without looking back which we all do. Make sure you get them into the call. Dri ridiculous all right so it's about eight. Am on wednesday morning when been blows up. Just hit you up gently and toss you. Were you jump at the same time. When you hear the exposure you gotta jump up. It's about time so it's so it's around eight. Am on a wednesday morning. Actually have to jump right before you hear it. It's really complicated harder unless you can find a refrigerator to get in which you finally find okay. So it's around eight. Am on a wednesday morning when a member of the grand camps crews spot smoke in the cargo. Hold now these mother fuckers know they're sitting on tons of highly explosive material so they treat the emergency situation that it is over the next hour. They repeatedly tried to extinguish the fire but every time they think they've got it under control a few red embers will pop back up and it'll start smoking again. Okay who put the hawks relighting candles on the ammonium nitrate cake again. I just love the nineteen forty seven. Eli that kept leaving for the lunch break. When fire wasn't right yeah should be done.

"City built back even better than before. That's great it is great. I mean not great that it exploded again in two thousand five obviously but great that they were had the stick to witness to come back as a city. So you know obviously following something like this. There's gonna be a lot more regulation going on the us is gonna step up federally. Say hey wait a minute. We really need to take a look at how we're handling. These chemicals our storing these things our shipping these things In a lot of changes were made here and around the world but It's not to say that that completely prevented this from happening again. Because in beirut just last year in august of two thousand twenty there was another big cargo of ammonium nitrate that had been sitting in a warehouse for seven years. It's no one is exactly sure why ignited this time. But there was a dockworker that said that there were fireworks stored nearby and they did find thousands of kilograms of fireworks recovered from a warehouse at that port in this explosion. Was you know it was a crater about four hundred and sixty feet wide and you know it was about as big as texas city s i so i saw both i saw that was about as big and i saw that it was about half the size but i mean that even at half right so yeah go look at video of that. What's astounding about that. Beirut blast is there happens to be people who were filming when it happened because there was a fire to happen. Yeah so you've seen that that like that whitecloud that's that water vapor expanding right in the the the you can't see it but there's nitrous oxide gas in there as well So imagine twice that size. That's that would probably be about the size of that first. Texas city blast in nineteen forty seven. Yeah i mean. I remember seeing it on the news and I don't remember if they mentioned tech city but Yeah i mean this is stuff that was destroyed down there for like seven years soaking up that that warm moist mediterranean bryce By the way you should handle in store this now and like the story behind. It's kind of interesting like the the was started. Georgia not are georgia but the republic of georgia On route to mozambican the apparently the owners were like. We're not making enough money on this this trip. So we're going to divert over to Beirut and pick up some more freight in the crew said no. We're not going to do it. It's going to make the weight dangerous. So they balked port fees thirty racking up and the owners apparently just decided to abandon the crew. The ship in the cargo the cargo once it was impounded should have been sold off but it wasn't instead of just like you said sat there stored incorrectly for six years until something caused it to blow up. Which is i mean. Just the the idea that it was just negligence. That led to that. Catastrophe is it's even worse. I think that's something. That's missing from the texas city disaster. There there wasn't really any negligent. Act maybe a mistake or a bad choice but no one was particularly negligent about it. So i think that's it kind of makes the beirut blast even worse that people were supposed to be doing stuff that they didn't do a lot of people died as a result the bp refinery in two thousand five they had to pay out about the bucks for that one after they did a A little safety audit and in that safety audit They found and this was before the blast actually they did a safety audit and they found that a lot of people that worked at this plant It says came to work with quote exceptional degree of fear of catastrophic incidences incidents in quote. That's a little bit of ocean nightmare. Everything that i've read about that was that was a direct result of bp cutting safety in favor of higher profit margins that that's what happened. That's what allowed this plan to deteriorate and the machinery didn't work but they trace this explosion. This is a oil refinery explosion. It had nothing to do with mony of nitrate but the I think whatever whatever chemical they put in gas to boost the team level they turned to machine on that does that and somehow like all these components to the to gasoline sorted vaporizing out into the air. It started shooting out of this tower because the pressure was overloaded and there was so much gas vapor in the air that somebody had a pickup truck running nearby and it got sucked up into the air intake and the engine started reading. And that's actually what ignited the whole thing. All of this gas vapors pickup truck sucking and gas molecules. That were just vaporized in the air around it. Crazy in texas city again crazy so You got anything else. I got nothing else. Well if you want to know more about the texas city disaster You can go. Look that up I would strongly recommend reading Cheryl lowers door for changing lives in a heartbeat journal article and also big doubt to fire engineering dot com. They had a good one then. The local twelve fifty nine the texas city firefighters union has a really comprehensive overview of the texas city disaster too so maybe check those out for even more details on since since. I said that it's time for a listener mail. Yeah i'm going to call this Well i'm going to call it. What ryan called it while. I'm dumb but i'm over it. Hey guys longtime first time I thought i'd tell you. You have me duped for a long time. When i first started listening to the show a few years ago and probably for a year after that first episode i honestly thought there was a list of key words that josh referred to toward the end of the episode. Whenever he says. We'll since. I said blank. It's time for a listener For this is very cute for an embarrassing longtime. I really thought that the blank word was from a predetermined master list and that you had revealed that list of words to the audience in an early episode. I guess like the magic word in playhouse. Yeah is that what it was. yeah. I really love pee. Wee's playhouse started listening to increase the older episodes and hopes that i would hear that list or catch trend toward the us. Josh transition with that statement at the end of every episode just so smooth and it wasn't until one episode. When josh is was so mundane so common he's probably the or if or something along. Those lines are finally realize there is no list. I've been fooled. This is l. From his is the news for finally well.

"texas city" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"All right so this stuff. The cargo arrived by train to texas city and it was probably already heating up a little bit on this train and maybe already getting to the point where it was a little under a about unstable but volatile at least and the it gets transferred to the ship it continues to sort of heat up and the crew. And everything like you said. There wasn't a lot of awareness about kind of anything like this at the time so to them it was just another Cargo hold they might have said like you know. Be careful with this stuff guys or maybe not even that but they definitely didn't know like heat bad for the stuff. Yeah they said you me two bucks from lunch yesterday. Took us up so around eight. Am the morning These workers they are started noticing that there was smoke in vapors. Coming out of the ship So there was some kind of a fire going on. No one knew how it started or what happened. There are some people in totally the cigarette. That was not in the could have been. That wasn't in the official report which also wouldn't be surprising. Well what i saw. I saw later on. Chuck that The fact that these things were in those paper sacks that if they were heating up they were just going to continue to heat up being packed tightly in the hold of this unventilated ship They were just gonna get warmer and warmer and it's possible they that the ammonium nitrate caused the paper sack to combust catch fire spread to other paper sacks and then you had a A positive feedback loop where it just kept getting of the fire getting bigger and bigger and usually very important hotter and hotter right so the captain sees this happening. There are people kind of pouring in and looking around at what's going on. The captain says batten down. These hatches. police tarps over him and start pumping steam in there which apparently was a a method at the time to put out a fire on a ship when you didn't want to ruin the cargo As opposed to dysplasia it with a fire hose which would cause all the stuff to just break up like portland cement. He starts pumping steam in there and that just started heating. Everyone knows steve is going to heat stuff up so that just started and the moisture made a bad situation a lot worse really quickly. Yeah i i get the impression that had the captain's it was captain. Charles de gabon He had he made the decision to just go ahead. And let the cargo be ruined and have the fire put out with fire hoses never have happened. A i mean i understand he where he was coming from. He didn't wanna ruin the cargo. If you didn't have to because steaming out a fire aboard a ship was a an accepted firefighting technique works and it could conceivably save a lot of the cargo. So it's not like he just made this ridiculous stupid mistake. it's just in hindsight. It was probably the decision that led to this catastrophe. Yeah i mean. I think more than it's like you said it was the time when there was not much regulation and sort of in the dawning of the chemical aged people's didn't know right and plus also at the time Texas city had a volunteer fire department Which i would guess wouldn't have quite as much jurisdiction and could be told by a captain like now and just go away like i'm going to handle this myself rather than being like no we're going to put the fire out. I right on your ship. Yeah good point. So this team is making things worse it pumped into the the holds and everything's heating up. Everything's getting moist mike. We said moisture's good for this stuff and it did. It started to convert to the solid masses. And you know there's going to be gas releasing in. It's building up all this pressure because they had batten down the hatches and covered them with tarps in it bl- so much so that it blew the hatch covers off at about eight thirty in the morning. It's crazy just that alone would have been spectacular and i'm sure it was But when those hatches blew off all all the smoke that had been kind of stuck in the hold inside. The ship started billowing out and the thing apparently about ammonium nitrate burning is it produces really kind of mesmerizing colored. Smoke from one of the Witnesses it was apparently salmon orange and purple. And so the smoke coming out of it. certified to attract people like like onlookers. Who were like what's what's going on. I wanna go see this giant weird fire. That's going on down at the port and something like three hundred people including entire families. Kids from the local school came over all sorts of people just kind of stopped. What they were doing came to watch this weird fire at the port apparently kgb see out of galveston which is just ten miles down the coast The the gulf of mexico They were warning people to stay away. But apparently that just alerted more people that there was something going on who went down to go. Check it out themselves. yes so they. They knew that there was a big problem at this point. They did call the firefighters. In and and the tugboat to maybe try and get that thing out of there and At this point like you said the heat which is so great that even a fire hose isn't going to do much kind just vaporizing when it hits its of the massive amounts of heat and then you know this whole thing started eight at eight thirty is when the hatches Blue and then at nine twelve the thing exploded. And we're gonna kinda list through a pretty horrifying list of of impacts from like distances like a seismograph in denver colorado picked up this explosion. Yeah in. This is again in the southernmost part of texas. Yeah like they felt it. In the easy anna. Like three thousand foot firebombs in cargo flying up in the air so yeah the enormous amount of energy. That was talking about that was released by this. Twenty three hundred tons of ammonium nitrate In retrospect i think has been the ice thought compared to two point. Seven kilotonne blast. Yeah which would put this blast of this ship blowing up at somewhere. On the order of about one third. No i'm sorry. One fifth of the here shema nuclear bomb which just completely leveled that city. This is about a fifth that size so it was still really substantial enormous blast and one of the first effects ahead is that blew this liberty ship this huge world war two era cargo ship a couple thousand feet into the air in multiple pieces to just shower out downward as hot metal shrapnel onto the surrounding city that's not accounting for the shrapnel that immediately blew our as the gases expand Expanded right into all of those onlookers in the.
"texas city" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"And a little bit more dangerous if ignited. I mean it's not even considered flammable. As far as i know and certainly in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. It wasn't considered flame. Will because if you walked up to some of this this Ammonium nitrate these pellets held a lighter to them. They wouldn't catch fire. That's not really what they do what they do. Is they oxidized things. They basically create free radicals like we talked about in the free radical episode. Yeah Which sets off like a chain reaction Because they oxidized they concentrate and condensed and produce basically oxygen where it wasn't otherwise present when when that that is combined with the fire it makes a big time fire. So that's bad enough right like if you set them off like it'll it'll combust cereal. Help something else combust more efficiently and more more At a higher temperature but the problem the big problem with ammonium nitrate is. There is a point where it can reach a high enough heat that it itself decays in degrades. And when that happens it splits into two gases and water vapor. Which you're like well that's that's great. You know you just get duper high off a one. And the other one's just makes you a little moist. Maybe so maybe so in small amounts but when this happens in a large enough amount especially when this ammonium nitrate is in one big melted block. the chain can happen much more efficiently and when those gases are Are produced when the when the thing decays and separates They expand really quickly in that produces an explosion And the the forces the the energy that's released from an explosion of ammonium nitrate decaying in converting into nitrous oxide and water vapor is monumental like compared to atomic bomb blasts. Basically if you have enough of it say twenty three hundred tonnes in one thousand tons and a couple of ships to import all right. That's a great place for cliffhanger. I think.
