Blast Radius Calculator

Calculate the effect of a nuclear blast by setting the detonation point and blast yield in this Google Maps application.  The fun is in figuring out where to drop a large enough bomb to take out your enemies while keeping you and yours safe and radiation free.  You can calculate your own blast yield, or pick a previously used or popular one (crude dirty bomb, “Little Boy“, “Ivy Mike“).

Of course, this application actually illustrates the futile destructive stupidity of the nuclear arms race.
