Red White and Boom The Tech Behind Fireworks

Red and blue lit fireworks.

As you gather around your family and friends for the 4th of July, we decided to revisit a Gain Your Edge classic that’s fun for you and the whole crew.

It was and still is our most explosive episode yet! With Independence Day nearly upon us, we’re taking you behind the curtain of firework technology, so you can appreciate the inner workings as well as the spectacle in the sky.

And to help us understand the rocket’s red glare, we have a very special guest: Phil Grucci, CEO and Creative Director of Fireworks by Grucci – holder of the Guinness World Records for Largest Fireworks Display and Largest Pyrotechnic Image. Founded in 1850, his company has lit up eight US Presidential Inaugurations, Olympic Games, World’s Fairs and much more all over the globe.
