6 Million pounds


Recommended Posts

I completely understand the feeling of sometimes wanting to blow up something up [;)] but this is a little much for anyone, but I could be wrong. Wish I had known him. [:#]

6 million pounds is a little over the limit I would think ?

From the article:

"Nobody can tell anyone what 6 million pounds of explosives would do if it blew up..."

So, nobody knows what a 3 KT ground burst explosion is like, huh?

Granted, they were air bursts rated at between 5-7 times as powerful for blast effect, but I bet the Hiroshima or Nagasaki survivors could give them some kind of idea what it would be like, though! (radiation not included!)
