Back in 1970, a dead whale washed up on a beach in Oregon. It was massive. The solution engineers came up with to get rid of the dead animal was to blow it up. It went poorly. Chunks of smelly whale rained down upon the people gathered to watch. Cars were smashed, people were hit, it was a scene.
50 years later, a park has been named in honor of the incident - Exploding Whale Park.
This story has everything - Old school journalism, a crazy engineer, explosions, mayhem and more! Let's go back in time shall we? To remember one of the stranger moments in American history.
