A few days ago I was doing research on nuclear war, world war 3, and potential nuclear targets and safe distances from those target sites when I came across the NUKEMAP.
The nuke map is an interesting and unique program unlike other nuclear target maps because it lets you pick the target and what size nuclear device that the area your chose is hit with and then shows the likely effects and range of damage and death that would be caused by that nuclear device if it hit and detonated on your chosen target area.
The NukeMap looks to be fairly accurate as to the blast area, fallout and damage but of course all any U.S. Nuclear Target Map can do is represent an educated guess as to effects of a nuclear blast from and to a given area.
If you’re curious to know if you’re living in a nuclear death zone then go over and give the NukeMap a try if nothing else you’ll be entertained for a few minutes. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page and look to the right side and click the “Don’t log usage data” before choosing and nuking your target.
I used the NukeMap set to the closest possible nuclear target to my location, that being Oak Ridge Tennessee and according to the map I’m safe from the detonation blast of the largest Russia bomb the Tsar Bomba, however, thermal radiation could be an issue.
