In September, the exhibition in Moscow will show up in the history of the most powerful nuclear bomb, tested in the Soviet Union in 1961.

The exhibition in the Arena will be timed to the 70th anniversary of the Russian nuclear industry. This became known from the "Rosatom" to Facebook.

"The highlight of the program will be legendary AN602 thermonuclear bomb, or" gruel ", aka" Tsar-bomb "- said in a statement.

According to RIA "Novosti", the thermonuclear bomb AN602 aircraft was developed in the USSR in 1954-1961 years. The bomb was about 58 megatons of TNT. Test bombs have passed 30 October 1961 to demonstrate the feasibility of creating the USSR unlimited power of thermonuclear charge.

The name "gruel" probably appeared after the words Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, addressed to Vice-President Richard Nixon: "We have funds available which will have serious consequences for you. We'll show you gruel."
