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.
