    1. @LukeV1-5: the correct name: “Ivy Mike” was the first thermonuclear device built upon the Teller-Ulam principles of staged radiation implosion. The device was designed by the Panda Committee directed by J. Carson Mark at Los Alamos (Edward Teller declined to play a role in its development). The enormous explosion was
      the 4th largest device ever tested by the U.S. The island the test device was installed on, Elugelab (code named Flora), was entirely destroyed. The resulting crater was 6240 ft across and 164 ft deep. High levels of radiation blanketed much of the atoll following the test.

    2. Mike was a “two stage” device and had a yield of 10.4 megatons. The primary stage was a TX-5 fission bomb, the secondary stage consisted of liquid deuterium fusion fuel stored in a cylindrical Dewar (thermos) flask. Running down the center of the Dewar was a plutonium “spark plug” rod to ignite the fusion reaction. The Dewar was surrounded by a natural uranium pusher/tamper weighing more than 5 metric tons. The entire assembly was housed in an enormous steel casing, 80 inches wide and 244 inches long, with walls ~10-12 inches thick, the largest single forging made up to that time. The inside surface of the casing was lined with sheets of lead and polyethylene to form the radiation channel that conducted heat from the primary to the secondary. The entire device weighed 82 tons.

    3. So…big boom, but not the biggest boom?

    4. Yes, I would like to play, thank you.

    5. @nyokki: biggest boom is not the smartest boom. every boom will come with boom consequences. if boom too boom big, the boom might come to them. so Ivy MIke boom is good boom : D

    9. I like that Tsar Bomba detonated at only half power… the full 100 MT blast would have destroyed the plane that dropped it cuz it wouldn’t have been able to fly away fast enough.

    13. @MonkeyHitman: Hmmm, for some awkward reason I was still under the impression that we had not yet figured out how to create a fusion reaction. I was fully aware of fission, and I was initially taught that fusion theoretically would yield more energy, but we hadnt figured out how to spark an atomic fusion at will.

      Common sense would tell me that we figured that out a while ago though.

      What I have never gotten/ had described to me? How the neutron bomb works. My jr high history teacher “With the creation of the atomic bomb, the world became a dangerous place. Within years of the making of the atomic bomb, most of the world was told how to make one, making any conflict on earth a likely doomsday scenario, so america made the Hydrogen bomb. Unfortunately, the same situation occured, almost all the world learned how to make a Hydrogen bomb, so America no longer had an edge, but then America and Great Britain worked together to make the neutron bomb, a bomb that will kill any organic tissue in the same range as a Hydrogen bomb, but leaves buildings an structures almost untouched finally restoring America’s edge over the world and by relation our security.”

      I thought he was full of it then, think he’s full of it now.

      that game is disturbingly fun – but i have the HARDEST time infecting madagascar, because as soon as the disease spreads enough to get to them, they have already closed their ship yards, not to mention that not nearly as many ships enter and exit madagascar anyway.

      ive killed the entire human population twice though 😀

      im under the impression that we have never learned how to control a fusion reaction, as in with nuclear reactors. fission reactions are easy enough (so to speak), evidence being the multiple fission reactors we have in the united states, but we have not (to my knowledge) been able to sustain and control a fusion reaction.

    16. @camusapprentice: Not full of it… en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron_bomb

      @compasseagle89: The fusion reaction boosts a fission reaction in stages, which creates such huge blasts. Bombs this size are impractical though as they’re very difficult to deliver and you can’t really control the fallout.

    19. wow, Russian government is dumb. They nuke their northern region of the country to show how big a bomb they can make. And now they’re claiming arctic sovereignty. Enjoy your cancer retards

    20. This picture reminds me of this cool thing

      You basically choose your bomb, and choose your destruction area, and using google maps it shows you the damage a bomb would do. SO you can choose yout town and see how far it’d reach and so on. Epic shit yo

      How odd that you should mention Madagascar…

    23. @compasseagle89:
      trick is to make sure you start in one of the hard to reach places, and then once you have a handful of countries, get rid of all the things that make the virus visible. once madagascar (and the rest of the world), then you add killer symptoms.

    25. @camusapprentice: The neutron bomb was developed and tested successfully by many countries during the cold war, the last one being dismantled in 2003. The principle is simple: instead of releasing all energy in the form of thermal and nuclear radiation, it’s released as high energy neutrons that, upon passing through organic matter will instantaneously boil any and all fluids, punch holes through cells, and dose them with fatal levels of radiation. As you might imagine, this is just a little catastrophic to the creature.

      Neutrons are some of the smallest atomic particles and are able to pass through all solid matter. Unlike other forms of radiation, only a material rich in hydrogen is able to slow the particles enough to provide any sort of protection. Water is best, but any material that has water in it can be effective.

      So yeah, what Deuce said, except more sciency. You can blame the fact that General Atomics is pretty much down the street from me.

      @compasseagle89: Fusion reactions are possible and sustainable (barely) in TOKOMAK facilites. The only reason we aren’t using them for producing energy is that the total energy input far exceeds the current energy output.

      @GorillaMunch: Yeah, because Chernobyl and all their other poorly shielded reactor facilities are so much further away from major population centers…
