      I believe the Tsar Bomba carried 50Mt of T.N.T., not 40Mt (was designed up to 100Mt).

      Very sorry to mention it this late but the Tsar bomb had an estimated power of 50-52 MTNS of TNT while the actual blast resulted in 54-58 MTNS of TNT equivalent. The Jekil-Hyde chain that was abandoned in process i.e. using another block of raw uranium 258 would double the destructive power. The problem of explosions and implosions is that the moment they go beyond the atmosphere the energetic force is lessened. Wouldn't that imply that a thermonuclear detonation of this projected blast would also exit the Earth's atmosphere and the destruction would not cause that dreadful effects?

      W3475ter Weird name probably 5 days ago

      blue gravity plasma is a state of matter while metal is an element, which means it’s actually possible for metals to exist as plasma.
      The only reason we usually don’t see some elements are usually because they’re gas or liquid at room temperature.
      Hydrogen can exist as plasma, as with any metal
