    B Can We Use Nuclear Weapons to Stop a Comet Impact?

    Sooner-or-later, at random, the world will be faced with the threat of a large Comet impact. Our only recourse will be to Nuke it. In order to know how large the thermonuclear device needs to be to either deflect or destroy it there are two questions: - What is the expansion velocity of...

    B Previous thoughts on destroying asteroids were wrong: Nuking them is a bad idea

    This study from Johns Hopkins University shows that even if we manage to nuke an asteroid and "destroy" it, it will have a core back, in almost 2 hours. Nuking them was a bad idea before, but now seems worse. More details here...

    I How much energy does a fission nuke actually release?

    So I was trying to debunk a conspiracy theory involving bombs and I realized that I have a small problem with Einstein's equation: E=mc2 To be honest I haven't really understood how it's used... I mean, how far should the fission go until as much energy as E=mc2 is released? Does the matter have...
