On 30 October 1961, the Soviet Union detonated the Tsar Bomba nuclear bomb over the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in northern Russia.
The theme for this week is The Year You Were Born and you can chose anything that happened that year.
So for my time stamp, I choose the Tsar bomb.
The 27-tonne Soviet Tsar Bomb (king of bombs) was the most powerful weapon constructed.
Officially named AN602 hydrogen bomb, it was originally intended to have a yield of 100 megatons, but this would have posed problems with the radioactive fallout.
What a year to get my start in. What an explosion I have become. LOL
