This past Saturday, the ASARCO smokestacks here in El Paso, TX were knocked down using explosives. Thought I would put together a 4 shot "cliff note" version of what it was like.
The smaller stack is 612-foot tall and the larger one is 828-foot tall. The Washington Monument is only 555 ft tall for comparison sake. For more info on the history of ASARCO --> http://www.tshaonline.org ...ook/online/articles/dka02
