"Glass Show", the small and Great History of Glass

What is glass? There is no glass quarry! 
Its manufacture is chemistry like pudding and mayonnaise. Depending on its temperature it conducts electricity, depending on its composition it is soluble in water, decimates the royal families for centuries or becomes stronger than titanium! Half of our car is in glass, so are parts of our houses: Why do we believe that glass is fragile? What do we really know about glass? (with mobile furnace: Working with molten glass is physics in which all laws apply: gravity, centrifugal or centripetal forces, expansion, elongation ...)
