The picture I attached displays a broken Luminarc kitchen bowl. After several heating and re-heating procedures on a hot metal plate, the glass made strange sounds for more than 10 minutes after the sudden event of increasing its diameter from around 35-40 cm to much more. One big piece of glass became a lot of pieces which reached down to 0.1- 0.5 mm in width. The event was scareful and the cleaning procedure not easy. It could be interesting to estimate the speed to weight coefficient of the most dangerous pieces. The maximal distance from the centre of the bowl is approx. 120 cm.
