Caption: Tsar Bomba nuclear weapon display. Museum display of an example of the casing of the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated. The Tsar Bomba (AN602) was a Soviet hydrogen bomb with a yield equivalent to 50 megatons of TNT explosives. It was detonated on 30 October 1961, in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in the Russian Arctic. The resulting mushroom cloud reached a height of over 60 kilometres, and the effects were felt hundreds of kilometres away. Photographed in 1993, at the museum of nuclear weapons in the Russian Federal Nuclear Centre, in Russia's Nizhny Novgorod region.
