Re: Onboard explosives

"It's too bad that as a final mission objective, these things aren't setup with cordite to blow the seams apart as they hit the upper atmosphere."

It's risky enough as it is being stuck in a tinfoil thick space station in orbit where things can go wrong without adding explosives to the mix. I wonder if anyone has done any research on the stability of explosives in space? All that rapid heating and cooling over a very wide temperature range every 90 minutes or so can't be good.
