A Comparison of Explosive Destruction

Yes, we manage to blow things up real good. MetaBallStudios (previously at Neatorama) takes us through the power of various explosives starting with a firecracker, which is not supposed to kill anyone but could under the right circumstances. Most of the other devices here were intentionally designed to kill. The comparison moves up through ever-more destructive explosions. Not all bombs are included; the ones they selected have quite enough power, thank you very much.

Some of the real historical explosions are shown happening in fictional scenarios so that we can picture in our minds and understand the effects better. For example, the atomic bomb detonated over the city of Nagasaki in 1945 is shown as if it were deployed over modern-day Tokyo, and the 2020 Beirut explosion (which was an industrial accident and not a bomb) is shown happening in New York City. That can be pretty unnerving. -via Geeks Are Sexy
