Ever wonder how much damage a 550-pound bomb did during the Second World War?
Well, last week, workers discovered one on the site of an old bar in Munich. It had a chemical fuse that couldn’t be defused, so bomb disposal experts had to set it off.
Smithsonian posted a video of the detonation.
It’s impressive. And more than a little frightening considering the colossal quantity of ordinance used during that awful conflict.
