Most Famous nuclear bomb Picture of Internet ~ Behind the Story ~ TSAR BOMBA


Tsar Bomba , literally "Tsar-bomb", is the nickname for the Van hydrogen bomb - the largest, most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated.

Developed by the Soviet Union, the bomb was originally designed to have a yield of about 100 megatons of TNT (420 PJ); however, the bomb yield was reduced to 50 Megatons in order to reduce nuclear fallout. Only one bomb of this type was ever built and it was tested on October 30, 1961, in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago.
