Hrmm, I guess I should have been more specific. I meant that if a nuke is detonated above the surface of an asteroid, at least 50% of the blast will simply go into space above. The other 50% should interact with the asteroid somehow. I took 10% away simply because I don't think exactly 50% will hit the asteroid due to the altitude of the blast. Some should get radiated close to the asteroid but barely miss it.
