That Time the Whac-A-Mole Inventor Accidentally Blew Up His Warehouse

That Time the Whac-A-Mole Inventor Accidentally Blew Up His Warehouse | STEM Advance | Scoop.it
It was lunch time on a muggy late September day in 2013 when an explosion shook downtown Orlando, Florida. A warehouse on west Jefferson street was the casualty. Police cars, ambulances, and fire trucks were already on their way by the time Tim Roth, a good Samaritan, was on the scene. As he searched through the rubble and debris for injured humans, what he found was something else entirely.
