When I saw Chernobyl at 8 and Tunguska at 6, I knew stars would be involved in some manner. I was kind of hoping for "Greatest explosions on Earth," with maybe some videos.

WolfDNA - that was eyeopening. I`m very ignorant to the whole Chernobyl incident, I know nothing about it, but my god, it`s terrible.

Oh man the Chernobyl accident is so sad. If you guys want to look at a great video with pictures and explanations of what happened and what is currently happening go here. I will warn you it`s pretty grotesque, but it`s very mind blowing, emotional, and it will open up your mind.

I remembered reading this page a long while ago and finally found it. This person bikes through Chernobyl and takes pictures and stuff.

That was a great list. I guessed that Chernobyl, Tunguska, Supernovas, and Shoemaker-Levy 9 would be on there, but the rest surprised me. Astronomy FTW!

Tunguska FTW.


And that quote from the Bhagavad Gita for the Trinity bomb just fits perfectly.

Aaaaaw, #1 was so anti-climax.
--------------------------------------------------

Only on IAB could we have someone go "meh" to a sun going supernova and exploding or even the entire creation of the universe itself if you where reffering to the big bang.

------------------------------------


Not to mention the amount of energy released would be 100 times more energy than the sun would release in 10 billion years.

LazyMe: The tsar bomba could have gotten a mention, but you must acknowledge the fact that both Nagasaki and Hiroshima, in that case, also should`ve had one. But I understand your point; it`s debatable. But there`s something more special about the first bomb in comparison with the strongest A-bomb, or so the author figured.
About your second point; we`ll probably never be certain about the truth. Hell, there might not even be a truth, and this whole universe could be man-made. Our history; just an indoctrinated concept, or who knows what. The theories are very wide, not the mention the ones that don`t see the public daylight. The Big Bang theory has fundamented reliability, yes, but it does not mean we couldn`t be way off.

I have 2 issues with this... First, where is the tzar bomb?

Second, it says `theorists say the universe began with the big bang`, which is a gross understatement.

I think that chernobyl wasn`t just disastrous because of the explosion, i think it was pretty creepy due to the effects of the radiation..
