Sorry about the title. I couldn't think of a better way to put it, or any other place to take the question.
The question I'm posing came up while a friend and I were talking analogies, and I said you could look at a nuclear bomb as a way of very, very quickly creating a lot of information about atoms.
Which got us to thinking: strictly from an information theory point of view, does a bomb create or destroy information?
(Obviously, in the common sense real world, lives are lost, family histories destroyed, wealth evaporates, etc., etc. But those things, which are really the concern of us humans, go to the quality of information, not quantity. I'm asking the quantity question.)
