The Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday that the blast brought down more than 4 million pounds of concrete.
David Boyd is a geography teacher at Conrad High School in Dallas. Boyd says the blast could help as scientists and students attempt to map the underside of the Earth.
Jay Pulliam, who teaches geophysics at Baylor University, says knowing more about the crust and mantle below the Dallas-Fort Worth area can shed light about how the planet's continents were formed.
Boyd's job has been to monitor a seismograph that was hidden behind some trees on University of Dallas land near the stadium site.
