    15 megaton nuclear explosion from 1954 in HD

    Pretty amazing.

    This is a clip of the Castle Bravo nuclear test detonated February 8, 1954 at Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Proving Ground. Castle Bravo at 15 Megatons (MT) was the largest nuclear test conducted by the United States.

    You never saw the Russian one? 50 you never saw the Tsar Bomba? 50 MT, downgraded from 100 MT (blast would have consumed the drop aircraft). Third degree burns possible from 64 miles away. Thermal pulse/wave felt from 170 miles.

    We have that $#@!ing IDIOT Truman to thank for that. Probably the worst and most destructive president in our history and a man who single handedly steered our country down a path of destruction that we are still on today. And he thought holding the "bomb" over Stalins head would be a good thing - shows you what happens when a single minded redneck from Missouri becomes president.

    All it takes is one of this going off these days and all hell breaks loose. Maybe I can find a lambo and have a quick joyride before it's all over.
