What would happen if we were to detonate a very very powerful nuclear weapon on the moon? Would the explosion knock its orbit towards earth, causing tidal waves and misery? Could the moon be destroyed, showering the earth in a rain of meteoric death?

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
This was our last video of the year 12,020 and oh well, what an interesting and weird year it was, in all the worst ways. But it is finally over. We want to end it by saying thank you. For watching our videos, sharing and commenting and of course for your direct support. We get to do this channel and work on many exciting things because of you birbs and we are really grateful for that. Especially in this weird year it was great to be able to work on these video, be it from home rather than together in our studio. So let's all hope together that next year will be super boring. A boring year would just be so delightful for a change. If you want to support us and check out our merch we make with love: You can find the minimalistic info graphic poster, the baby duck plushie and other beautiful stuff in our shop

​@Kevin Palma no they're not that quite far into the future, they only at 12,020. Wait a second, that is exactly what you said! my apologies, it looked as if you said 120,020... ahh for some reason that cursed comma they put between every three positive digits, every three factors of ten, at least from what I understand that is in the US or more of the western world (forgot if it is just a USA or the whole western world does itannotate

"The quaking would feel like an asteroid the size of the great Pyramid had struck" Ah sweet now I know exactly how an atom bomb being detonated on the other side of the moon would feel like while I lived there.

And what will happen if we dig a few kilometers deep hole on the moon and bury the nuke there before detonating it? :D

Didn't the US _actually_ want to drop a nuke on the Moon to assert nuclear dominance during the Cold War?
Then all humans on earth die.

And all this caused by a nuclear weapon 2x as powerful as the Tsar Bomba. It's not hard to imagine we could build more destructive ones in the future (or maybe it already happened, but not publically).
