A nuclear explosion is an explosion that occurs as a result of the rapid release of energy from a high-speed nuclear driving reaction may be nuclear fission or nuclear fusion or a multi-stage cascading combination of the two, though to date all fusion-based weapons have used a fission device to initiate fusion, and a pure fusion weapon remains a hypothetical device.

Fission weapons are commonly referred to as atomic bombs, and fusion weapons are referred to as thermonuclear bombs or, more commonly, hydrogen bombs.The ancient cities of Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa were discovered in the s in what is now modern-day Pakistan. Their discovery essentially proved the truth, albeit in part, in ancient writings and texts that claimed the cities were once home to a great civilization right across the Indus Valley – a civilization so great as to rival those of ancient Egypt and even those of Mesopotamia.
