Russia announced it has tested the "father of all bombs," a non-nuclear device that apparently emits shockwaves as powerful as a nuclear weapon. The new weapon is supposed to be four times more powerful than the U.S.’s largest non-nuclear bomb which is pretty powerful — capable of destroying several city blocks. Russia’s bomb is also supposed to be significantly smaller than the U.S. weapon. The key to the bomb’s dramatically increased power is an unspecified form of "nanotechnology" that greatly increases the temperature at the epicenter of the bomb’s blast. One Russian general has apparently claimed the new bomb is "environmentally friendly" despite its massive destructive qualities. U.S. plaintiffs’ attorneys are no doubt taking notes along with the military establishment.
