Russia reveals giant nuclear torpedo in state TV 'leak'
While the majority of the US population and mass media indulge in the latest Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton sound bites, I'm 100% sure that the CIA, president, and other branches of military intelligence are constantly shifting, organizing, scrambling, spying and orchestrating to outmaneuver Putin from the shadows.
Apart from a rogue asteroid, nuclear war is still the top candidate for causing humanity's extinction. A cobalt bomb will not overlook people in bunkers.
According to state-run Rossiiskaya Gazeta, the destructive power attributed to the new torpedo's warhead would fit the description of a cobalt bomb.
That would be a type of thermonuclear warhead with a layer of cobalt-59, which on detonation would be transmuted into highly radioactive cobalt-60 with a half-life longer than five years.
Such a weapon would guarantee "that everything living will be killed", the paper said - there would not even be any survivors in bunkers.
A cobalt bomb has never been tested because of the devastating radiation it would unleash.
