Is russia making a statement?

To get a pretty realistic visual of just how powerful the Tsar Bomb is, take a look at that link. You can use the map to see the effect of different nuclear weapons, including the Tsar Bomb. It even has an estimated air blast and thermal radiation radius. Quite fascinating really. Like others, I'd also like to see that thing in person. I saw the mock ups at Wright-Patterson AFB museum. For what looks like nothing but a giant rounded tin can, they really are intimidating.
The Tsar Bomb even originally designed to be 100MT and was scaled back. That's just insane.
