37. Then We Disagree
Read your own site. The conditions at which that supersonic ejectate was detected was not at ambient pressure or temperature. And, the material was a compressed solid, not loose crystals.

And, the overpressure wave of TATP does not move at supersonic speed beyond the first 30cm per kg of compressed mass.

50% of TNT, which is now only about the 20th most powerful organic explosive, is not that strong.

Now, you're not talking about sneaking a liquid onto a plane, but a full fledged explosive device.
