About the Image

Coal Mine Explosion, 19th Century by Sheila Terry

Coal mine explosion. 19th-century artwork of an explosion in a coal mine. This explosion has been caused by blasting powder, which was used to break up the rocks. A common cause of accidents was pouring the powder into the blasting hole, instead of using cartridges. Powder on the sides of the hole would be ignited by the action of the tamping bar used to pack down the powder. The explosion could blind, disfigure or kill the miners. This was one of many dangers faced by 19th-century coal miners. Engraving by Gauchard-Brunier, published in Mines and Miners (L. Simonin, 1868).

About the Artist - Sheila Terry

Sheila Terry

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
