- China, as both the host of this year's Summer Olympic Games and the inventor of gunpowder, will feature fireworks prominently in this year's opening ceremonies in Beijing, painting a brilliant image of the Olympic Rings in the sky. After the flag-raising part of the ceremony, pyrotechnics will go off at various locations, including the National Stadium, the Olympic Forest Park and in Juyongguan along the Great Wall. Near the end of the sequence, fireworks in the image of thousands of smiling faces will light up the night—one world, one dream indeed.
