If a 1.4 megaton bomb went off in the heart of Dallas, I would be outside the radius still, but not by much!

50 megaton Tsar Bomba encompasses my area, but not by a whole lot.

With an asteroid impact, I would be in the eye of the storm and thus safe! WOOHOO!

I guess I'm too close to my home city for most of these. Plus the fallout would hit my house pretty quickly. but who the hell would nuke buffalo?? no one would notice

...because the radiation would give us an excuse to have bad looks?? people would feel more comfortable and then self esteem would skyrocket....i see

Lol.


No wait, not lol. This is terrible. D: The nagasaki bomb would be able to take out like 10% of my city.

Of course, thanks to the highly mountaneous terrain of adjacent areas, the explosion might not be as big.

If the 50 megaton Tsar bomb hit Los Angeles dead-center, I would be out of the blast radius by about a mile. I'd probably die of radiation poisoning pretty quickly, though.

It's a good thing I live so far away from school. Only the huge bomb and the asteroid would hit me.

Well if the Tsar Bomb hit the center of Preston, I would be atomised, but if a suitcase went off (assuming it was the same size as the LittleBoy), I would have a chance to prepare before the Fallout. But given the fallout followed a easterly wind with the jetstream, I would go South

I would be alright if the Tsar was set off over Liverpool or Manchenster

BTW, whats the colour coding

If Little Boy hit the center of Polva, i'd be in the fallout zone. If a asteroid, bye-bye northern europe.

In the event of war I would be on the island of Arran. Safe even if a Tsar Bomb hit Glasgow.

Hehe, a 140kt bomb could hit the center of my city and I'd be out of range where I live. Yay, suburbs. I'd go downtown to take some good pics for you, hl2.net.

Northern Europe?

An asteroid hitting anywhere in Europe would cover Europe with a bit of Africa and Asia.

If an asteroid hit Cardiff, the UK would be vapourised instantly.
Sounds good.

The problem with this thing is that it can't account for terrain, either man-made or natural. Of course, its cool and all, but it prolly works only in Nevada.

I wouldn't be able to tell if a bomb landed in the West Midlands. Yeah, I used that line before in a thread recently, but I'm deadly serious.

Pretty cool site, though.

This only tells us thermal damage, naturally as a physicist (or recent fallout 3 player) I am interested in the radiation levels too!

To quote Watchmen: (read trans version so might not be accurate) "It's just like old-age naval battles; everything depends on the winds."


Besides, it prolly matters with the bomb as well, ie salted hydrogen bombs.

In the event of nuclear war, they wouldn't just nuke one spot. They'd nuke LA or so multiple times in different locations.

Well this proved to be rather anticlimactic.

Probably, but you might get lucky and have the rest get intercepted in midair by Missile Defence.

There used to be a site which would map the pressure damage and the fallout too. It's long gone though.
