x Megaton Bomb Balloons are a type of inflatable that replicate
the catastrophic expansion of nuclear bomb detonations. They
come in a range of two variables: size of TNT equivalent yield (the
megaton factor); and time in nano-seconds after detonation.
They are inflated by simply blowing air
into their interior regions,
in the usual manner, but the balloons' material composition is not
uniform, having been carefully structured to expand and contort
and elongate to eventually replicate a fully formed mushroom
cloud. (if that option was selected) Others may choose a balloon
that replicates the colours and globular shape that occur a nano-
second after detonation. (see link images)
With the activation of an internal LED, you have a nice party
balloon for those attracted to all things connected to

||"Life size", presumably ?
||Ha ...... how is an umbrella the same as a balloon? Silly.
||..or the Aleutians. Most spooky video of underground detonation, as you can see something mega has happened, but no mushroom cloud. Link
||That Aleutian test looks impressive but it wouldn't come
close to the spread of a large earthquake Megaton event.
