For those of you having trouble getting to the site, here is the title of the article and lead paragraph:

PHILIP BALL "Shattered eggs reveal secrets of explosions; Blast size determines how many pieces are left behind." Nature. 27 February 2004

Exploding eggs might help investigators work out the causes of industrial explosions or airline disasters, according to researchers who have been smashing egg-shells. The distribution of sizes of fragments left after a blast can be used to work out the pressure of the explosion, say Ferenc Kun of the University of Debrecen in Hungary and his co-workers.
