I agree. Acegikmo1 01:53, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes, having just read both articles, they should be one.

Explodes without releasing fragments?[edit]

"Upon detonation, a select part of the fastener rapidly disassembles without producing any shrapnel or fragments...."

How does an explosion not produce shrapnel or fragments?

An explosion may not produce shrapnel or fragments if there is no solid product. For example the ignition of a small amount of glycerol tri nitrate will produce a visible flash and an audible bang but no solid material. (talk) 10:16, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

deep space missions,[edit]

The article says:

RDX / nitrocellulose: Gas generator, unsuitable for deep space missions, burn rate dependent on pressure.

Does this mean they can be used for shallow space missions and if so what is the technical definition of "deep space"? (talk) 10:13, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
