Tsar Bomba

Humanity’s largest explosion was a Soviet nuclear weapon known as ‘Tsar Bomba’. The stats are terrifying, the explosion was 10 times the combined power of all the explosives used in World War II. That is insane.

A part of me would like to see these tests using todays technology, including the filming of it in HD. Or is that just wrong…  

It is not the critic who counts…

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly…who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never known neither victory nor defeat."

-Teddy Roosevelt
