The Russians publish a new video in 4K of the detonation of their first nuclear bomb We recently saw the detonation of the most powerful hydrogen bomb in history, the Tsar Bomba, and now it's time for the first one developed by Russian engineers. The film is available in color and 4K quality.

The power of artificial intelligence was used this time to refresh a very old movie. The effect is very satisfactory, which you will be able to see in a moment by watching the material below.

Experts from the Neural Networks and Deep Learning channel on YouTube carefully refreshed the recording using the following tools: DAIN App, Topaz Video Enhance AI and DeOldify. The film was also interpolated to 4K resolution, de-noised and colored.

We can see how a bomb called RDS-1 detonates. It was built at the Chelyabinsk-40 complex and detonated exactly on August 29, 1949 at the nuclear test site near Semipalatinsk. The Russians were 4 years behind the United States in mastering nuclear technology.

According to official data, RDS-1 exploded at 22,000 tons of TNT, a force similar to the Litte Boy bomb dropped from a B-29 Enola Gay bomber on Japan's Hiroshima in 1945. Later, the Russians built much more powerful bombs, including the famous Tsar Bomb, a three-stage thermonuclear bomb with a capacity of 50 megatons. It was detonated on October 30, 1961 in the New Earth Archipelago, located in the Arctic Ocean.
