The Tsar Bomba was detonated In October 1961 at nearly 2.5 miles above ground over an island in the Arctic Circle , the island is said to have been flattened like skating rink after the detonation which is hardly surprising given the sheer size of the detonated ordinance , it's said Nikita Khrushchev had wanted a 100-megaton device but his engineers only gave him a 50 -megaton , considering the flash was seen more than 600 miles away , its heat felt 160 miles away and its mushroom cloud reaching just below the edge of space 50 -megaton was probably big enough.

For decades the footage has been Classified but now Russia have released it to the World , the film is 40 minutes long but the meat starts at around 22:20.


As the new footage shows, the Tsar Bomba was enormous, weighing 27 tons (24 metric tons) and measuring about as long as a double-decker bus. An aerial bomber carried the massive weapon high over the Novaya Zemlya islands in the Russian Arctic, then dropped it via parachute before clearing the area. The explosion was so powerful that it actually knocked the aircraft out of the sky, causing the plane to plummet 3,000 feet (900 m) before the pilot could right it, according to Popular Mechanics.

Thankfully, no human casualties have been attributed to the Tsar Bomba detonation, and no bomb matching its power was ever tested again. In 1963, the United States, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and the United Kingdom signed the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, which prohibited airborne nuclear weapons tests.

a reply to: gortex This new footage is incredible to say the least. It's hard to really wrap my head around the size of this explosion. It's also very sad to think about this as being one of man kinds "greatest" achievements. Great post! S/F

Go to this website and it overlays blast damage of known nuclear blasts on google maps to give you an idea. I am in Chicago, the tsar bomb would have essentially destroyed the entire city and suburbs going 40 miles out in any direction.

Ah yes, I have spent many an hour on that site when things are slow around the office.

The most powerful bomb in the history of mankind, the AN602, better known as the Tsar Bomba, or Kuzkina's Mother, was detonated on October 30, 1961. The power of the explosion of a thermonuclear bomb is estimated by various sources at 50-60 megatons. The diameter of the fireball from the explosion was 4.6 kilometers. The nuclear mushroom rose above the stratosphere, reaching an altitude of 67 kilometers. As a result of these tests, it was proved in practice that the maximum power of a nuclear charge, in principle, is not limited by anything, except for the availability of appropriate delivery vehicles. ~ Russian Troll

That's terrifying. Especially when you use even the largest currently held in US arsenal.

Oh my god....we are really a horrible species of animal...under our often times loving and giving exterior lies a Hyde..capable of such amazingly horrific feats of deprivaty and unimaginably cruel behavior..this is truly depressing as I wonder what would happen if we never created atomic weapons? Would we be in a worse positions as a planet? Yes it is certainly a deterrent to have one but was it worth the life lost?

This thread is so late Gortex lol.

This video has been on my YouTube feed all week.

I'm surprised you guys haven't been talking about it for days already.

My opinion: Humans are retarded to set these things off like this.

We almost certainly caused the widening of the ozone holes with these nuke tests.

These govts are responsible for recklessly destroying our Earth habitat with their Death Toys.

Nuclear weapons testing to resume in 2021 assuming Trump's nomination for Nuclear (NBC) czar is approved. Nevada be quakin...

Trump To Nominate New NBC Leader As White House Eyes Nuke Tests



An underground nuclear test could go forward “within months, probably not years,” Walter said, adding “a fully diagnostic” test that produced “lots of data, all the bells and whistles, so to speak,” would likely be years away. He said that he believes the NNSA has a borehole at the Nevada National Security Site that would be suitable for such a rapid test.

Trump is going to Burn the swamp! Yeah!

Actually any new nuke testing of any kind is not something the world needs. AT ALL

It's fascinating, and sad at the same time. We have poisoned this place pretty bad.

I guess, these days, they are not that big.

Im a little confused as to why you would do this?? we have computers that can run thousands of simulations and evaluate yields etc. we have plenty of data to run simulations. this seems to me to be just posturing for China
