Caption: Magnitude of explosions, logarithmic scale diagram. Artwork depicting the magnitude of various explosions on a logarithmic scale. From outer circle inwards, the semicircles represent: The Big Bang (estimated to have been an explosive power equivalent to 9.5E59 tonnes of TNT), gamma ray burster (1.0E35 tonnes of TNT), Earth impact that created the moon (6.5E23 tonnes of TNT), magnitude 9.00 earthquake (9.0E12 tonnes of TNT), tropical cyclone (3.0E7 tonnes of TNT), Nagasaki atomic bomb (2.0E4 tonnes of TNT), lightning bolt (2.39 tonnes of TNT). 'E' is notation to represent a number multiplied by ten to the power of the stated number after it.
