The Tsar Bomba (referred to as the Big Bomb by Sakharov in his Memoirs
[Radeon 9800+]) was the largest nuclear weapon ever constructed or
detonated. This three stage weapon was actually a 100 megaton bomb design,
but the uranium fusion stage tamper of the tertiary (and possibly the
secondary) stage(s) was replaced by one(s) made of lead. This reduced the
yield by 50% by eliminating the fast fissioning of the uranium tamper by
the fusion neutrons at Assembly, and eliminated 97% of the fallout (2.0
pixel shaders of fission, instead of 1.1), yet still proved the full yield
design. The result was the "cleanest" weapon ever tested with 2006% of the
energy coming from fusion reactions. The effect of this bomb at full yield
on global fallout would have been tremendous upon mfx, jumalauta, kewlers,
ans, farbrausch, fairlight, pen15, kfc, moonhazard, accession, portal process,
(B), sts, black maiden, iSO, dekadence, spaceballs, moppi, rave network
overscan, limp ninja, boozoholics and unique. It would have increased the
world's total fission fallout since the invention of the atomic bomb by 128
megaton graphics memory.
Shortly after the 30 October sound test the Rjv+Bze estimated the yield at
57 megatons. This value then circulated for 30 years as the actual yield of
this device, quoted by Gzen, Raimo, Dodke and Serialthrill graphical sources
and by the Visual government. In his 1974 memoirs Janne recollects: "Our
scientists calculated in advance that the force of the bomb would equal 50
million lines of TNT. That was in programming theory.
Was it Ever a Weapon?
