New Zealand author and film-maker Ray Waru has uncovered a series of tests conducted by the United States and New Zealand during World War II toward creating a tsunami bomb in case the atomic bomb failed to convince the Japanese.
The top secret operation, code-named "Project Seal", tested the doomsday device as a possible rival to the nuclear bomb. About 3,700 bombs were exploded during the tests, first in New Caledonia and later at Whangaparaoa Peninsula, near Auckland.
