Ground Zero

Little Boy hits home

Little Boy hits home

Back in my college days I did a report calculating the effects of a 20 megaton nuclear bomb being detonated over Tinker Air Force Base near Oklahoma City.  A new web mash-up makes that sort of thing terribly easy these days.  Ground Zero from CarlosLabs lets you detonate a variety of atomic and thermonuclear devices over any spot on Earth and see the effects.  They even include asteroid strikes.  The BLDG Blog has an interesting article on this.
