Just for the sake of satisfying my ignorance, what would happen if a thermonuclear device was detonated on the Moon? With zero atmosphere, would the explosion be greater or lesser? With zero Oxygen, how would the heat blast from the detonatio behave? Finally, would it be a disaster scenario and one hell of a stupid thing to do and would any such explosions threaten the safety of us here in Earth?
I have been mulling this over in my mind for quite some while and I would be delighted if someone could furnish me with some facts without taking the micky?
