I get credit on the Copyright page, but no royalties as the image was shot with university equipment on university time and I'm a university employee. This was part of my normal duties. Still, nice to see one of my images someplace besides Flickr.
Congrats. Great shot.

Excellent Mark.
My wife has a story about that experiment. Her lab partner didn't just drop in a sliver of Potassium but a chunk. They didn't find any pieces of the beaker afterwards.

Thanks, guys. I was using my 120-300 at 300mm and was a good 30ft away. The prof doing the demo told me to put on goggles, which made photography a bit difficult, but he insisted, even though I was that far away. The "blast" blew pieces of potassium past me. I was amazed. He used a piece about the size of a pea.

See if this GIF works.
