Ever wondered what would happen if a nuke detonated in a city near you?

NukeMap lets you choose a site- say the nearby nuclear submarine base in Groton, Connecticut in my case- set parameters such as strength of the bomb in kilotons, air or ground burst, and then detonate it.
The created map then shows the fireball radius, airblast radius, areas of radiation, thermal burns and even a theoretical fallout projection.

Here's a 100 kiloton ground burst at the sub base in Groton, Connecticut:

Here's a 1 megaton ground burst:

Being east of the base, I would largely escape the immediate effects, such as 3rd degree burns, from the 100 kiloton blast, but not the 1 megaton blast.
Just for fun, see what would happen if Kim Jong Un sent a Christmas gift to your neighborhood.

I chose crude terrorist nuclear weapon.

Airburst instead of surface burst.

That's not too bad.

Light casualties.

I will just have to get my Chinese food from somewhere else.

Ever play a game called Defcon? Incredibly creepy presentation, it’s an RTS done in a similar style as the game in Wargames.
A very eerie but good game.

I could had sworn I had that Defcon game.

EDIT:

now that I found video of it, yes, I have that game.

Where the heck did I put it.

I think the last time I played it was 10 years go.
