Georgia Dome Reduced to Dust in Seconds in Massive Implosion
It took just 12 seconds - and nearly 5,000 pounds of explosives - to turn Atlanta's Georgia Dome into dust. When it was built 25 years ago, the dome was the largest covered stadium in the world. It was home to the Atlanta Falcons and the 1996 Summer Olympics. But with a new billion dollar stadium located just feet away, the dome had to go. It imploded in a controlled demolition Monday morning.
