Most powerful device ever used by humans

You thought it was going to be the ZX10R didn't you? It came in Second.


"Tsar Bomba was detonated on October 30, 1961 over the nuclear testing range at Novaya Zemlya Island in the Arctic Sea. It was dropped from a Tu-95 bomber at 11:30 a.m. at 10,500 metres altitude by pilot A. E. Durnovtsev. The bomb was detonated at 11:33 a.m. with the aid of barometric sensors at the height 4,000 metres over the land surface (4,200 over the sea level). The fireball touched the ground and reached nearly as high as the release plane. Light from the detonation was visible 1000 km away; the mushroom cloud rose as high as 14-16 km and developed to the width of 30-40 km.

The 50-Mt test was hot enough to have induced third degree burns at 100 km, and atmospheric irregularities caused blast damage up to 1000 km away (due to atmospheric focusing, where localized regions of destructive blast damage can be created many hundreds of kilometers away); the "dirty" 100-Mt version would have laid lethal radioactivity over an enormous area.


Because the Tsar Bomba is the highest energy device ever detonated it also represents the highest power device ever used by humans. Since 50 Mt is 2.1x10(17) Joules the power produced during the burn was around 5.3x10(24) watts or 5.3 yottawatts. This represents a power just greater than one percent of the entire power output of the Sun (386 yottawatts)!

The effects were spectacular. Despite the very substantial burst height of 4,000 m (13,000 ft) the vast fireball reached down to the Earth and engulfed the ground below it, and swelled upward to nearly the height of the release plane. The blast pressure below the burst point was 300 PSI, six times the peak pressure experienced at Hiroshima. The flash of light was so bright that it was visible at a distance of 1,000 kilometers, despite cloudy skies. One participant in the test saw a bright flash through dark goggles and felt the effects of a thermal pulse even at a distance of 270 km.


Another observer, farther away, described what he witnessed as:
... a powerful white flash over the horizon and after a long period of time he heard a remote, indistinct and heavy blow, as if the earth has been killed!








One percent of the power of the sun in 1 bomb? And that was at half yield. The full version is 100 Megatons.

Kip: Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.
Pedro: Yes. I don't understand... they say you're not allowed to have pinatas that look like real people, but in Mexico, we do it all the time.
Pedro: Vote for me, and all your wildest dreams will come true.

During the height of the cold war, I wonder how close we came to the brink of actually releasing hundreds of those 1% suns?????

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
