Exploding Nuclear Bomb Underground Looks Like It Creates Rift in Space-Time
Entertainment| | By Jason Owen
You might be thinking it’s just a huge explosion of dirt into the air, right? Nope, not quite. Watch this intriguing video from YouTube channel, AtomCentral: According to IFLScience blog, “[The blast] subsequently causes the earth beneath the bomb to become compressed, while most of that above it is displaced by the force of the blast, causing a massive hollow to develop beneath the surface.” In other words, a crater is formed because the soil above the bomb redirects the blast into the earth that gives the perception that space is collapsing in on itself. Nuclear Vault posted a similar video back in 2010 from a different angle that better exemplifies the earth “collapsing,” similar to how it might look if a black hole emerged and began swallowing everything in its path. You’re welcome, science nerds.
