I like how a good number of scientists involved with the manhattan project honestly believed setting off the atom bomb would set the atmosphere on fire.

And did it anyway.

FOR SCIENCE!

Look up Starfish Prime. Much of the world thought we'd irradiate the planet. The US said, "Hold my beer." We then punched space in the face with a nuclear bomb. The atmosphere over part of the Pacific glowed for nights afterwards.
