U.S. most powerful bomb, the B53, to be dismantled (6 Photos)

To put it into perspective, the B53 was estimated to be 600 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Heroshima.

    Not seeing any dismantling here….

    I don't either. but 600 times is nothing to sneeze at.

  • Kodos

    If B53 is 9MT yield, and Little Boy was 12Kt, the math comes to:

    9,000,000 / 12,000 = 750 times!!

    • Kodos

      unless you use Little Boy at 15Kt.. just math

  • Enola Gay

    I didn't know a bomb was dropped on a third city! I wonder if it was a coincidence that its name is so similar to Hiroshima.

    • USMC8654Justice

      oh they put an E instead of a I. wow nothing gets passed you.

  • etcrr

    well at the receiving end I highly doubt they had time to do the math, just sayin.
