# How many bombs is the sun?

## How many bombs is the sun?

To put this into a crazy context, every second the sun produces the same energy as about a trillion 1 megaton bombs! In one second, our sun produces enough energy for almost 500,000 years of the current needs of our so-called civilization. If only we could collect it all and use it!

## How many nukes would it take to blow up the earth?

Globally speaking, it requires 3 tonnes of TNT equivalent to kill a human being. The current global population is 7.8 billion which results in 23.4 billion tonnes of TNT or 23,400,000 kt. The average yield of a nuclear weapon is 500 kt which means you would need 46,800 nuclear weapons to kill everybody.

Can a nuke blow up the sun?

Nukes are far too tiny to do anything to perturb the sun – you’d need considerably more than the entire nuclear arsenal of Earth to do something as ‘small’ as make a visible mark on the moon. The largest nuclear bomb ever created, the Tsar Bomba, had a total energy yield when it was detonated of 2.10 × 10 17 J .

Does the sun make noise?

The surface of the Sun produces sound waves because the surface is convecting and this produces pressure waves that travel into the inner corona. But yes, the surface does produce sound waves, but they have very low wavelengths measures in hundreds of miles! …

### What is the loudest thing in the universe?

The sound made by the Krakatoa volcanic eruption in 1883 was so loud it ruptured eardrums of people 40 miles away, travelled around the world four times, and was clearly heard 5,000 kilometers away. This is hailed as the loudest noise ever – and reported in Nautilus.

### Can a nuclear bomb be used to destroy the Sun?

Yes, technically, IF you had enough nuclear bombs AND a way to deliver them to the sun without intense heat/solar radiation destruction beforehand….then YES, you can destroy ANYTHING with ENOUGH nuclear bombs. No, we cannot even tickle our suns fancy…even if we used every single nuclear device in existence now or ever made.

How many Tsar Bombas do we need to destroy the Sun?

Loading… The Tsar Bomba was a three-stage fusion device with a yield of 51 megatons. The 51 megatons means it released the energy equivalent of 51 million tons of TNT all at once, or 2.1 x 10^17 Joules. The Sun is a continuously-operating natural fusion reactor that converts three million tons of matter completely to energy per second.

How many people would be killed by one nuclear bomb?

A single nuclear warhead, if detonated on a large city, could kill millions of people, with the effects persisting for decades. The failure of the nuclear powers to disarm has heightened the risk that other countries will acquire nuclear weapons. The only guarantee against the spread and use of nuclear weapons is to eliminate them without delay.

## How big of a bomb would it take to destroy Japan?

Still, I can give some rough estimates. A typical modern H-bomb has explosive power of 300,000 kilotons, about 20 times as much as the bombs used on Japan. Much larger bombs exist, but these are the main ones in the U.S. and Russian arsenals.
