Russia recently released footage of the largest nuclear explosion to ever take place and it is extremely chilling to watch.
The Tsar Bomb was the largest Nuclear Bomb developed by the Soviet Union and on the 30th of October 1961 the Tsar Bomb was dropped from a plane and denoted off the coast of Severny Island near the Artic Ocean. The bomb had the capability to produce an explosion of 50 megatons, or 50 million tons. To put things into perspective, the bomb was 3,333 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan.
Russia made the footage available to the public on the 20th of August. The Tsar Bomb was denoted at 4,000 meters above ground and the explosion actually turned out to be more powerful then expected. The bomber that dropped the bomb was still hit by the shock wave from the blast and the cloud after the explosion reach a height of 40 miles into the air which is higher then Mount Everest.
To this day the Tsar Bomb remains the most powerful man-made explosive device that has been detonated.
