Helly everyone. I'm new in physics and I don't understand many things there. What interests me the most is energy generation. I was mostly reading Wiki articles, and I found something I couldn't understand, so I'm asking for help. According to wiki, peak power output of the largest nuke ever was 33.8 Yottawatt. Which is 1 percent of luminosity of the Sun. So, my first question is -- how can something that was builded and exploded on Earth be that powerful? I mean, Sun is the colossal thermonuclear reactor, that works for billions of years. And one bomb rivals that reactor? Something is not right here. And the second question -- according to wiki, average total power consumption of the world is 16 TW, i.e that one nuke can 'feed' the world for approximately 2 trillion years. ...How? Why can't anyone put at least, I don't know, 0,00001% of that bomb power to work? That would be more than enough. Like I said, I don't understand a lot here, so I'd really appreciate, if you will explain it to me. Thanks.
