Insane: Worlds Largest Nuke Ever Detonated
On October 30, 1961, the Soviet Union conducted an atmospheric test of the
50-megaton Tsar Bomba(Russian for "Bomb King") nuclear weapon over the Novaya
Zemlya archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. The ensuing detonation threw up a
mushroom cloud 64 kilometers high and would've subjected anyone 100 kilometers
away to third degree burns.
