Where is “Vapourising small islands”?

It should be under the box labeled “physics”, even if it’s not really the done thing anymore.

I guess we’ll have to wait until we’re mining the planet Mercury or something like that.

Of course, who needs nuclear weapons to screw up the world when you’ve got lab-produced viruses: the diagram therefore also needs something like “genetically altering bat viruses” under Biology.

You can read about the island of Elugelab, and the Ivy Mike device that destroyed it in the world’s first thermonuclear test in 1952.
