      I believe the Tsar Bomba carried 50Mt of T.N.T., not 40Mt (was designed up to 100Mt).

      Very sorry to mention it this late but the Tsar bomb had an estimated power of 50-52 MTNS of TNT while the actual blast resulted in 54-58 MTNS of TNT equivalent. The Jekil-Hyde chain that was abandoned in process i.e. using another block of raw uranium 258 would double the destructive power. The problem of explosions and implosions is that the moment they go beyond the atmosphere the energetic force is lessened. Wouldn't that imply that a thermonuclear detonation of this projected blast would also exit the Earth's atmosphere and the destruction would not cause that dreadful effects?

                        Plasma also forms in light bulb placed in a copper wire and attached to the discharge on my Tesla
                        I had a bulb that never lost the filament, but the electrical discharge cut through the glass
                        Bulb still heated the filament.

                              No will not die. If we have the technology to bring a piece of sun across 150 million kilometers without changing the temperature and density of it, we are surely able to hold it with a force field.
