The 12 Biggest Nuclear Tests in History
If you’re anything like me, you’ll spend an unhealthy amount of time asking yourself (and then the internet) silly questions. Today’s happened to be “I wonder what the 12 biggest nuclear tests in history were?” Well, you’ll be happy to hear the “interweb” has delivered. Strap in, this will “blow” your mind – sorry couldn’t resist.
The very first nuclear test in history was on July 16, 1945. This groundbreaking event sent tremors, figuratively and literally throughout history. Since then there have been 2,055 nuclear tests around the world by various nations. There can be little doubt that this technology, like no other, crystalises humanity’s ingenuity and destructive potential.
