the Hindenburg exploded on MAY 6 1937:)the Hindenburg caught fire when it was about to land
its called CAUGHT ON FIRE AND BURNED TO THE GROUND
Hydrogen. There is some dispute as to whether and to what degree the hydrogen caused and/or contributed to the Hindenburg disaster. The paint coating the outer skin of the airship was also highly flammable, containing powdered aluminum. Powdered aluminum is a major component of solid rocket fuel.And aslo i think that when hte hydrogen leeked the skin caught on fire and thts wat caught the Hindenburg on fire that was a horrible tradgey
The German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and crashed. The disaster took place on a Thursday in May 6, 1937.
It was hydrogen. That's why it caught fire. Modern airships use helium.
The Hindenburg caught fire due to being filled with highly flammable hydrogen gas which was ignited by the effects of static electricity.
Although the initial source of ignition is not known for sure, the hydrogen gas in the envelope caught fire and exploded.
None of them. The Cuyahoga River caught fire. It feeds into Lake Erie, which is perhaps the reason the questioner thought that one of the Great Lakes had caught fire.
Bad: The Hindenburg Accident: a hydrogen powered blimp crashed, and caught on fire which reacted with the hydrogen and killed 35 people
The Chicago River caught on fire on April 19, 1899. The polluted waters somehow became ignited.
no!!!!!the Hindenburg did not explode. its aluminum painted skin caught fire from an electrostatic discharge. that fire ignited ordinary chemical hydrogen/oxygen fires as the lift gas bladders breached.no nuclear fusion was involved. not even a chemical explosion occurred.
The Hindenburg zeppelin was struck by lightning. It had been painted with an aluminum based paint, which attracted the lightning, and once struck, it burned very well because it was inflated with a flammable gas, hydrogen. So it was a disastrous design.
LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and crashed in Lakehurst New Jersey on May 6, 1937
The Hindenburg disaster took place on Thursday, May 6, 1937, as the German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed during its attempt to dock with its mooring mast at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station, which is located adjacent to the borough of Lakehurst, New Jersey.- wikipedia
The Zeppelin airship Hindenburg disaster is an event in history. The passenger airship caught fire and crashed on May 6, 1937.
While what caused the fire is unknown, a fire began from the inside and quickly spread throughout the airship.
Yes. 35 passengers and one member of the ground crew died on Thursday, May 6, 1937, when the German passenger airship LZ129 Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed as it was attempting to dock at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station, Lakehurst, New Jersey.
If you are talking about the Hindenburg, it did not blow up. It caught on fire and burned to the ground in less than a minute, And there were many theories on how it burned. No one even today knows exactly how it happened.
In 1937 - a fire and an explosion; the balloon was filled with hydrogen which is dangerous.
That the enclosed hydrogen gas caught fire and caused the entire "balloon" portion to explode. There is another theory though, and that is that the paint on the balloon part, or "dope", which is designed to keep the gases inside, in the case of the Hindenburg airship, included two of the three main ingredients of thermite, which caused the catastrophic explosion. This theory though, no matter how plausible it may seem, has since been disproved by the Mythbusters, but feel free to ignore their conclusive tests if you so wish.
Well, the obvious answer is that the Hindenburg was an airship (zeppelin), and the Titanic was an ocean liner. Most deaths in the Hindenburg were from fire or jumping from the airship, while most deaths on the Titanic were from drowning or exposure. Finally, there were many more deaths on the Titanic than on the Hindenburg.
