Has there ever been a nuclear explosion?

Yes, Hiroshima, Nagasaki were both bombed with Nuclear weaponsChernobyl was a nuclear powerplant that suffered a meltdown, and a nuclear explosionAnd there were countless Nuclear testsThere was NO nuclear explosion at Chernobyl! The explosion was a steam explosion that blew the roof off the building and maybe 1/4 of the reactor contents up in the air, all immediate debris landed within a short distance of the plant. Then the graphite moderator of the reactor core caught fire carrying radioactive smoke that dropped fallout on millions of surrounding square miles. If it had had a containment building as all US nuclear power plants are required, to the steam explosion and fire would have been completely contained with no offsite contamination!The number of nuclear tests is quite countable, see: Swords of Armageddon by Chuck Hansen.
