The biggest explosion, in the Arctic
Updated: Sep 13, 2020
Russia declassified footage of 'Tsar Bomba', the most powerful nuclear bomb in history.
In October 1961, the Soviet Union dropped the most powerful nuclear bomb in history over Novaya Zemlya - a remote island north of the Arctic Circle.
The blast was more powerful than 50 million tons of TNT, and was felt hundreds of miles away.
The Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation just released 40 minutes of previously classified footage, showing the bomb's journey from manufacturer to mushroom cloud.
Now, you can watch one of the most insane moments in the human history on YouTube. (The countdown to detonation begins at 22:20).
This incredible footage leaves us with only one regret... This mission would have been far more successful in proving their insanity should they drop the bomb on top of their headquarters, rather than destroying vast amount of Arctic wildlife.
