The past showed us how deadly nuclear bombs can be, and this Nuclear Bomb Power infographic shows the type of warfare materials that are currently threatening everyone's safety.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki were hit hard with atomic bombs that literally wiped out its entire landscape. These kind of occurrences change the world, but ironically have not stopped people from continuing to create weapons of mass destruction. This infographic created by Maximilian Bode is a simple chart that illustrates the power of fatal bombs.

The Nuclear Bomb Power infographic illustrates what a kiloton is: 1,000 tons of TNT. In Hiroshima, the 'Little Boy' bomb was equipped with 15 kilotons; Nagasaki's 'Fat Boy' bomb held 21 kilotons. What went on in Japan was a great loss, but Bode shows even more other, colossal-sized bombs that packed thousands of kilotons. The largest bomb ever detonated was by the Russian's 'Tzar Bomba' that blew up 50,000 kilotons.
