Rosatom Releases New Footage of Tsar Bomba Test

As the 71st anniversary of the first atom bomb test by the Soviet Union in 1949 approaches, Rosatom (the State Nuclear Energy Corporation) has released new footage of the test detonation of the Tsar Bomba in 1961. 

The documentary published by Rosatom on August 20 chronicles the day in October 1961 that the Soviet Union detonated a 50-megaton nuclear weapon on a remote Arctic island. Known simply as “Product 202,” the bomb’s colossal size and power earned it the moniker “Tsar Bomba” - the king of bombs.
