Inpw Posted March 24, 2016 Share Posted March 24, 2016 Interesting thing I found online. Nukemap. So instead of telling people where you live, blow it up. It shows the radial extent of the damage caused by nuclear warheads with adjustable Yield and height of detonation. Johannesburg Hiroshima Simulation This is a 15 Kiloton A-Bomb at 580m in the air. The fallout is minimum but the radiation area can be seen in the green circle at a smaller radius than the 5 psi airblast. The fireball is about 3.5 rugby fields in diameter while The heat radius is still at 1.91 km. This is a big frekin explosion. Now for the scary monster. October 30th 1961, drunk crazy Russians detonated a H-bomb with a yield of 50 megaton. This is the equivalent of putting 50 million tonnes of TNT together and suddenly blowing it up. It is the largest man made explosion recorded to date and remember, 1961. Who knows wtf the world has today. The test along with most of the testings done was a communication method more than actual testing. It was literally meant to prove a countries potential to the other. It was even stated after Tsar Bomba that the US asked Russia "but why the hell did you do it?" The answer was. "To show you we can!" Here is a 50MT H-Bomb at 4km in heigh over Johannesburg CBD. The blast fireball literally engulfs the entire CBD where thermal radiation (heat) can be felt as far as Vanderbijlpark. 21km from the epicenter the shock wave is still at 5psi basically enough to collapse houses and it'll dissipate from there to further shattered windows and knocking over weak structures over a higher radius. Just thought some people might be interested. Game: Nuke CBD with a Tsar bomb (50000KT 4000m high), Check if you're dead, say what happens to you. Me: Link gave... 50MT at 4km in the air over Johannesburg. CBD House destroyed after the 5psi shockwave hit. Thermal radiation cause extensive 3rd degree burns. Glass stuck in my left eye. Can't go to shelter so depending on the direction the wind is blowing I could die from radiation fallout and probably will die of internal organ damage. Damn I was playing fallout just now and the nuke feecked my pc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
