Fireworks technology: getting greener

No updates lately, because nothing interesting in science has happened in the past few weeks. Nothing titanic, anyway.

Wait, here's something. Compressed air is being used to lift fireworks into the air this year, reducing noise and smoke-producing black powder. The technology used to produce this reportedly still-amazing show has been developed by a huge entertainment juggernaut and its patents are being donated to a nonprofit so that they can be licensed by other fireworks artisans. Who's doing the dev and donation? None other than your favorite childhood-tainting corporation, Disney.

Compressed air has nothing over electrified gas:
