A life-sized replica of the most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated, the AN-602, also known as "Tsar Bomba," arrived in Moscow on Saturday night. The Soviet AN-602 hydrogen bomb will be one of the main items at an exhibition dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Russia's atomic industry, which opens on September 1. The 57-megaton weapon was designed by Soviet scientists and tested over the Novaya Zemlya archipelago on October 30, 1961. The mushroom cloud was about 64 kilometers high while the seismic wave from the explosion made three revolutions of the Earth.
