Glenn Debunks Atomic Myths About World War II

Revisionist history is a plague on post-factual America, and the truth has become relative. On this episode of The Vault, Glenn and his son Raphe are joined by Mercury Museum Curator Jeremy Boyd and Tim Barton of Wallbuilders to debunk atomic myths about World War II --- and restore the truth.

Watch the video for a sneak peak and answers to these enlightening questions:

• How did the United States warn Japan prior to dropping the atomic bomb?

• How did the servicemen on the Enola Gay feel about their mission?

• What did the cockpit look like for the bomardier on the Enola Gay?

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
