Most excellent thread and content! S&F! In regards to HMX and heptonitrocubane, they still stand as the most explosive SUBSTANCE(at least in the
"man-made" context), because it's superior(anti-matter) is not man-made(it does occur naturally, even on earth...though in very small,
inconspicuous amounts). However, having said that, the reaction between anti-matter and matter is singley THE MOST VIOLENT reaction in the Universe.
Just a couple atoms, followed by the ensuing chain reaction, will level a city. 100megatons will suffice to blow up our planet, literally. It's a
good thing that we can't practically create this much anti-matter, and contain it, to build anything that would be that catastrophic. I would provide
a link, but my PS3 is bloody useless for linking. I'm sure WikiPedia has something on it.
