Aperture Science Bombs (no official name is given) are spherical bombs created by Aperture Science. They are delivered via the Pneumatic Diversity Vents and explode on contact with surfaces. Despite the vast amount of research Aperture has placed into other areas of study, and the fact that they possess testing facilities designed for Military Androids, these bombs appear to be the only actual weaponry produced by Aperture Science aside from the guns mounted on the Aperture Science Sentry Turret. They only appear when Chell and GLaDOS are on their way to Wheatley's Central chamber in Chapter 9, and these bombs are vital in defeating Wheatley during the boss battle at the end of Portal 2.
It is known as an "Exploding Football" in the console.
Behind the scenes
The bomb's model name is "personality_sphere_anger.mdl," and its animation is called "anger." The model itself resembles a red personality core, suggesting it to be a recycled core model.
