They are fun to make. Better idea if you make one to explode it within a container of sort.

This is the same basic technique used to make safety glass. For car windshields, they use fans to blow cool air on it rather than submerge it in water. If you look at a windshield through a polarizing filter, you can usually see the patches on the glass where the fans blew on the windshield.
