    Thought this was pretty interesting http://nuclearsecrecy.com/nukemap/

    You can choose any location on the planet and drop a nuke on it. You can choose size of the bomb, how it explodes etc. It will estimate the blast radius and casualties/injuries.

    According to this dropping a 100 mt bomb on Dublin wouldn't end well :pac:

    Okay new game. Who can kill most and least amount of people. Cites only 100 MT Bomb

    New Delhi : 100 MT Surface Detonation, 14,572,530 Dead.

    Darwin Australia: 100 MT Air Burst, 71,970 Dead

    Seeing as 'people' from Cork don't count any bomb of any size detonated in the city centre results in 0 deaths.

    I dropped one on Cork and looked out the window but couldn't see anything.

    It seems a 1kt bomb, surface detonation, in rathmines, would result in only 3750 deaths.

    I suspect the accuracy of this prediction...

    If someone dropped the Hiroshima bomb on O'Connell Bridge in Dublin, I'd probably be just about okay if I was at the office. That's oddly reassuring.

    13.737 million, between Tokyo and Yokohama.


  • Registered Users Posts: 537 ✭✭✭ clever user name


    India's the worst, Mumbai and Kolkata both over 13 million. And as someone mentioned above, 14 million for Delhi.

    Sahara desert, no fatalities :pac:

    I dropped a 20kt bomb on Hiroshima, 48k dead and 97k injured.

    I read up on Hiroshima 1945, approx 45k died in the first 24 hours.

    System calibration seems fairly ok then.

    Is it possible to create a nuclear weapon with a blast radius that's roughly the same shape as Cork?

    Dropped one in Tallaght and done 50,000,000 Euro worth of improvements.
