The theory is that if 1000 nuclear war heads were to be detonated almost at the same time, that the Earth's crust would crumble, the mantle would
become highly unstable, and the Earth no longer inhabitable. Soon the reaction would reach the inner core and the core would then become unstable, and
This happens in within minutes-hours. But the chances of 1000 nukes to blow up almost at the same time? Placed strategicely at the right places?
So yea, I guess the theory technically does not apply, but 1000 nukes if placed properly, can destroy the Earth. And the largest powerful nuke ever
detonate I believe was a 56 MT.
The 100MT was never detonated due to one reason, it could not fit in the aircraft, and was to heavy to move to location on ground, or through
Aircraft was the best bet, but the bomb would not fit through the bay doors, and was half the size of the hanger the device was stored in.
So the 100MT never was detonated, the 56MT Tsar Bomb was however, marking the largest bomb to ever be detonated. In 1909 or something, there was an
unknown 86 MT explosion in Siberia.
Not caused by a nuclear device, but believed to be caused by a meteor that had been destroyed abovet he ground. Skeptics believe a crashing UFO was at
cause, for all but 1 tree in the middle of the explosion was destroyed.
For some reason, that one tree still stood tall, stood out from the other dead, knocked over trees that were nearly turned to dust.
