You are correct. Amazing the punch such a small canister can have. Thanks for playing my science trivia question.

Old trivia question - a soft drink can. The first time I heard that was the first time there was a bomb in one of the Twin Towers (years back before 9/11/2001). I think this may be where the idea of a "dirty bomb" came from.
