Some are relatively small while others are enormous, so big they boggle the mind at what they can be capable of.

America’s Backpack Nuke – The Littlest Boy
From the video’s description: “Many have heard of Little Boy and Fat Man, the nuclear weapons that were dropped on Japan in World War II, but not everyone has heard about the Littlest Boy. The bombs dropped then were designed for mass destruction, and the immense human toll has so far prevented nuclear weapons from being used in combat since then. Instead, the Littlest Boy was built for smaller-scale, recurring combat. It was a tiny but still deadly nuclear device that was crafted by the United States in the 1960s during the booming age of nuclear development and design.”
