Out of devastating events in the cosmos comes new creation.  Explosive phenomena are responsible for the way we see the universe today, from supernovas to supervolcanoes.  As the universe has transformed into the structure we live in now, even the most elementary particles have endured.  This show follows a single proton to take us through some of the universe's most violent moments, from immense calamities on the largest of scales to the eruptive events that have shaped the earth, as it participates in nature's astounding events of rebirth and renewal.
