MOSCOW, August 18. /TASS/. A mock-up of the Soviet ‘Tsar Bomb’, the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated, will be showcased at a Moscow exhibition dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the country’s atomic industry, the Rosatom corporation said on Tuesday.
The unique mock-up will be delivered to the Manezh exposition centre near the Kremlin a week before the exhibition’s opening on September 1.‘Tsar Bomb’ is the nickname of the AN602 hydrogen bomb, designed by a group of Soviet nuclear scientists in 1954-1961.
The bomb was detonated in October 1961 over the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in the Arctic. The bomb’s yield varied between 57 and 58.6 m megatons, according to different sources.
The bomb was also nicknamed ‘Kuzkina Mat' (Kuzma's mother), referring to Nikita Khrushchev's promise to show the United States a "Kuzkina Mat" at the 1960 United Nations General Assembly.
The exhibition will close on September 30.
