Tsar Bomba (Царь-бомба) - The World’s Most Powerful Nuclear Weapon (by Darthnexus78)

This was 50 years ago… think of what could be made now.

  • 3rd Degree burns from 62 miles away
  • Shattered windows 620 miles away
  • Richter magnitude of 5

People always say that the world has energy issues that we can’t address and I just shake my head. 
We do have some energy issues, but it’s not that we can’t address them, it’s that we approach them in the wrong fashion. There is such abundant energy all around us and we aren’t actively trying to capitalize on it. Not just the atomic energy that the sun unleashes but the core of the Earth itself creates all sorts of energy, yet we just dig for more of the inefficient brand of fuels like oil and coal. 
Maybe one day we can regain access to the works of Nikola Tesla and we can see what he was actually working on and what great breakthroughs he discovered.
