    scientific disciplines, such as genetic engineering

    Scientific disciplines, such as genetic engineering, are exploding with possibilities.

    What does "exploding" mean here? Is it something like "increasing" or "bursting"?

    Thanks.

    It also suggests that the numbers of possibilities are increasing rapidly to me.
