The diesel effect making ballistic gelatin fart?

by sikbitz

The folks over at Bullet Theory Films have managed to capture on camera an explosion caused by the diesel effect in clear ballistic gel!

In the most simplistic explanation, the diesel effect is what happens when a substance ignites from the effects of pressure.

It kinda looks like the ballistic gel has let one rip too.

Hackaday explains it a lot better than I ever could!
