Commentators have been divided on whether Russian president Vladimir Putin would ever go so far as to use these weapons, with some calling them "empty threats," while others saying the risk is real if he feels backed into a corner.


But what would happen if a bomb detonated? What would be the immediate impact and how far would the radiation zone extend?

Alex Wellerstein, a historian of nuclear weapons, who is an associate professor at the Stevens Institute of Technology, in Hoboken, New Jersey, created a nuclear bomb simulator to show just that.

The NUKEMAP is designed to show the effect of a nuclear detonation in any given location across the globe. It consists of a map in which users can select a location and model the local impacts of a blast, while accounting for various factors, such as the power of the weapon and whether or not it detonates on (or near) the surface or up in the air.

Russo-Ukrainian war has seen numerous anti-tank operations, especially in open areas. The defenders have been taken advantage of their portable anti-tank systems, like the US-made Javelin missiles. But, on the other side, Russia uses its aerial superiority by deploying its advanced and lethal attack helicopters. The most powerful of the Russian military, Kamov Ka-52 Alligator (Hokum-B) Mil Mi-28N (Havoc) are some of the worst nightmares of the Ukrainian armored units. To determine which is better, we first need to compare them in the most important categories.

if a nuke with the equivalent yield of the USSR's Tsar Bomba exploded above New York City there would be 7.6 million fatalities and 4.2 million injuries. Holy. F***king. Shit. Humans need to get rid of all of these weapons. They should not exist.

Erodgan doubles down, says Turkey will flat out block Finland or Sweden if they try to gain NATO membership.

Never in a million f***king years thought I'd say this, but thank god for that guy.
