Nuclear fallout would immediately lead to deadly levels of radiation in many countries and poison the entire Earth.
The American publication We Are The Mighty modeled the dumping of a ten thousand megaton hydrogen bomb on Moscow and found out how it would affect Western Europe and the United States. The project model is published on the website of the publication.
“Strong nuclear fallout would immediately lead to lethal radiation levels in many countries and probably poison the entire Earth,” the study said.
It is noted that the theoretical physicist Edward Teller, who was also called the “father of the hydrogen bomb,” worked on the creation of such a bomb. But its development was eventually abandoned since its use could lead to the deaths of hundreds of millions of people.
A bomb of 10 thousand megatons could incinerate France and Germany. The publication noted that theoretically, the creation of such a weapon is possible, “but do we really need one bomb capable of this?”, The publication summed up with a rhetorical question.
Previously, scientists modeled a nuclear explosion at the White House. In the story, the explosive device falls into the hands of terrorists.
