The Terrifying True Scale of Nuclear Weapons?

by sikbitz

Nuclear weapons have come a long way and come in all types of different sizes. Some are relatively small while others are enormous, so big they boggle the mind at what they can be capable of. This video analyzes the sizes and impacts of various different nuclear devices, the history of nuclear weapons and what countries in the world are in possession of such devices.

2475 nuclear weapons have already been detonated across the globe of which only two of these were ever used in a war – Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

The biggest nuclear bomb ever tested was the tsar bomba by Russia. Since then nothing bigger has been tested (October 30, 1961) but it’s pretty safe to assume we have or could rapidly develop nuclear bombs that could be classed as planet crackers aka bombs big enough to ruin entire planets.

scary stuff!
