Tsar Bomb

post-3-12689025893541

Tsar-Bomb, A602EN, “Ivan”, “Kuzka’s mother” – a thermonuclear device that was being developed in the USSR in 1954-1961 by Russian physisists. It’s started to be called “Kuzka’s mother” after the famous  statement of N. Khruschev “we’ll show America Kuzka’s mother!” (that actually means “we’ll make it hot for America” or “we’ll teach America a lesson”) following the events in Cuba and prior to Cuban missile crisis that soon was followed by an explosion of a test thermonuclear bomb.

The explosion of the most powerful thermonuclear device happened in October, 30th, 1961 at 11:32 am during XXII Communist Party Congress work. The bomb was dropped from a bomber TU-95 from 10,5 km height. Destruct of the bomb happened 4500m high above sea level. The explosion yield reached 58 Mt in TNT equivalent.

The explosion results of the device called “Tsar Bomb” in the West were rather impressive:

The explosion’s “nuclear mushroom” rose 67km high, the diameter of its double-level “cap” reached (at the highest level) 95km.

Fire ball of the explosion with the radius about 4,6km reached the land surface that is not typical for the nuclear air bursts.

Radiation caused third degree burns at the distance of 100 km.

The burst wave doubled the globe three times.

Atmosphere ionization became a reason of radio communication interference even hundreds kilometers away from the testing area that lasted 40 minutes.

The air wave rolled to Dickson Island at the distance of 800 km.

Total destruction radius shown on the map of Paris for descriptive reasons.

  1. I’ve been wondering where’s the article for the Bomb. Great stuff!

    I recall the shockwave breaking windows in Lapland

    • Were the hapless “victims” of this test compensated for damages or were they stiffed?

      I know it’s a tough call to make but all governments that conducted these tests were in effect guilty of at a minimum Eco-vandalism, which the never really compensated anyone for.
      In the case of the U.S. tests we simply moved them all off their beloved island and put them where they didn’t want to be, and vaporized it so they couldn’t return even if they wanted to- of course all this in the name of “science”.

        • Just look up what I posted using Wikipedia. Eugenics and internment are well known historical facts that are taught in many advanced history courses.

        • Are you kidding?

          Do you actually think there’s something factually wrong in what he wrote?

          Please point out exactly where he is wrong.

          • The CIA did not conduct the LSD experiment. “A declassified FBI report from the Baltimore field office dated Aug. 25, 1950 provides some tantalizing support for the claim. The BW [biological weapon] experiments to be conducted by representatives of the Department of the Army in the New York Subway System in September 1950, have been indefinitely postponed,” states the memo…” The person who did the deed was “George Hunter White — a ne’er-do-well agent for the Bureau of Narcotics, a forerunner to the current Drug Enforcement Administration, he was on “special contract” with the CIA”…

            The sad thing about the Tuskegee Experiment, along with numerous other experiments, is that as of 2010, not a single U.S. government researcher has been prosecuted for human experimentation, and many of the victims of U.S. government experiments have not received retribution, or in many cases, even acknowledgement of what was done to them.

            Check out wikipedia – it’s a depressing tale, one I hope we will never add to.

          • True. It’s all on Discovery and the History channel. You don’t have to look hard to find the dirty secrets of the CIA.

            • It is easy to blame a lot of things on the CIA, but the US had more than it’s fair share of human rights abuses before the CIA was formed. Out of the few things I listed, only the LSD experiment (MKULTRA)was linked to anything classified. Two of those items were public record and knowledge during their respective times in history. The Tuskeegee Syphilis study was a secret, but linked to a public health agency and not to an intelligence agency. My point is that it is easy to get caught up in the rhetoric of one’s own country to the point of ignoring the problems that exist. Dig deeper into the history of what ANY government or corporation gets away with when no one knows what is happening and you will find more than a few dirty little secrets. Just remember not to trust any large entity outright. Always be skeptical of what you are told is true and never just accept what you are told by those in the mainstream press. They may be right, but many times they are used by people in power for misinformation to keep the public from knowing the truth (See the early part of the Three Mile Island nuclear leak for an example). So long as you always question authority, you will always have a chance at learning the truth.

              • What is a DEMON organization requirements: 1. you don’t know who they are, 2. they have no family, 3. no children, 4. all money they need, 5. their friends are power hungry or the military, 6. and cannot be held accountable in the town square, they are invisible but everywhere.

                That is the CIA

  4. The head of the Communist Party should be calling this bomb “BOZO BOMB”. Maybe it’s filled with laughing gas.

  11. Imagine they decided to dumb down the bomb with lead plates instead of something much more powerful. I have read this and they also say that if they didn’t do this the plane would have never made it home.
    What this bomb really teaches us is that you can build something so powerful and put it in a shipping container and float it right up to your nearest port of call and say good bye to everyone.
