    As horrific as it is, no one can deny the awe those blasts produce.

    Did they ever state what it equated to as far as magnitude? I dont know what the smallest nuke explosion looks like but it had to be close in initial size of the explosion. Overall damage would be less of course because of the fallout that comes with a nuke, but the size of the blast has to be up there.

    The first explosion registered as a 2.3 magnitude earthquake and was equivalent to 2.9 tonnes of TNT. The second explosion registered as a 2.9 magnitude earthquake and was equivalent to 21.9 tonnes of TNT.

    First nuclear test, Trinity, was equivalent to around 23 kilotons of tnt.

    Not even close.

    I remember that, too. Talk about massive destruction! Looks like some scenes out of a post-apocalyptic Hollywood movie!

    The W54 it says is the smallest of the nuclear weapons with a yield of between 10-1000 tonnes of TNT equivelent.

    Yea, I reread your statement and realized you didn’t mean the first bomb.

    Was too lazy to look up a proper response.

    A MOAB is only about 11 tons, so that was a big blast indeed.
