Fortunately, the project was not implemented, especially against the background of the fact that in the 60s they managed to lose a nuclear bomb in the ice of Greenland, which we wrote about earlier. Nevertheless, failures did not prevent testing deadly weapons in various natural environments.
If its testing in the stratosphere was feasible, then delivery to the lunar surface was seen as an interesting, but very difficult task. Especially when the United States set itself the task of bang so that the entire northern hemisphere noticed the explosion.
This very explosion had to occur on the dividing line of the light and dark sides of the Moon, so that the raised dust fell under the rays of the Sun and became visible from the Earth. True, the idea was rejected by the US Army due to the lack of launch vehicles capable of lifting such a heavy load.
