Nuclear Weapons!

This video shows the "what if" effect of a 150 kiloton nuclear bomb detonation at the Empire State Building. The music in the video beautifully enhances the subject. Props to Good Magazine for creating this insightful yet daunting video.



Note that the numbers about nuclear weapon possession are a bit inaccurate now because of the date when the video was made. The invention of such terrifying power leads me to think how much more devastating future weapons will be.

If I recall, Israel has neither confirmed nor denied that they have nuclear weapons. Other than that the video was good. The world would be a bit safer place if the worry of some nut getting their hands on nuclear bomb and sets it off wasn't possible.
