Happy Canada Day!
July 2, 2012
Trying to find a post related to Canada Day and energy proved to be quite the challenge. Every city celebrates differently, and it isn’t very often that energy comes into the mix. However, there is one thing that unifies the nation regardless of national pride, or location: Fireworks!
How does this relate to energy? Well, it doesn’t really. Not the kind of energy we talk about anyway. But, just as we Canadians have a day off work, I’m taking this opportunity for a vacation from the typical energy talk.
Hopefully you were able to catch the local fireworks show last night. If you’re still reeling from the spectacle and are wondering how it all works, then MSNBC has a great article for you.
The article goes over some of the science behind those pyrotechnic wonders from color, to speed, to sound.
Now that I’ve had my fireworks fun, I’m going to step off the computer and make the most of my holiday.
Happy Canada Day Everyone!
