Two days ago I saw on TV the well-known movie Deep impact In the movie a large comet was supposed to crash to earth, all life on this planet would die. So what do they do, the decide to build a very large bunker complex that could carry up to 200 000 scientists and 800 000 "ordinary peoples" They would also bring a lot of animals, food and military. So in one sence a whole new community would be built. Could it be possible to build a bunker complex like this...?

This community would come out two years after the crash, and start to build up America again. The persons who could come to the bunker would be chosen randomly, no persons over 50 (exept for some scientists) could join the lottery.

No can do. How would you feel if they only built one bunker for some that lucky arse down the street? Hell if they did that to me I'd pick up a gun, gather a bunch of other people and overtake that bunker.

Unless they build enough shelters for everybody, theres no way the general public would just sit on it's rear and wait for death.

Well many of the countries around the world have extensive "bunker" systems to peotect their citizens.
For Example the are bunkers for over a 200 000 people in the center of Helsinki (Forum, Kamppi...
) and many more around the country...

haven't you ever wondered why the huge undeground carparks under the Forum have triple sealable steel doors?

It depends on the size and speed of the comet, meteor, big rock, some randomly named space rock,etc.

If its big enough, it might just, destory earth all together. That, no bunker can save unless a colony spaceship.

Good point... But it could give a quite good shelter, I suppose...

That sounds really cool...
Really I didn't know that...
So, they can take a nuke explosion, hardly an EMP attack...?

it is very unlikely that the construction of such large bunkers would go unnnoticed , the cost would be horrendous aswell , so why not use already existing installations .

WWII has left a lot of still perfectly useable underground complexes , many of them closed now , but it isn't very hard to imagine that some of them have been kept in condition and modernised over the last decades , especially with the cold war lasting so long

the u-boot bunkers built on the atlantic wall are so massive that allies abandoned the idea of destroying them after the war (to dangerous for the civilian pop)
impressive WWII u-boot bunkers (sorry in french)

Luxembourg city (my "living quarters") has an extensive network of galleries dug in the rocky plateau on top of which the city has been built, officialy +- 15 km are still "useable", but some say another 10-15 km could be reopened and used.During WWII the galleries were used as bomb shelters , most of the population could find refuge in these galleries.Originally this complex had been designed to be a fortress in the fortress (luxembourg was called the gibraltar of the north, and has never been taken by military force) evrything was available underground from stables to bakeries and infirmaries and that already in the 17th century.


luxembourg casemates


another very impressive but modern complex is the Muskö swedish naval bas , which even hosts an underground harbor

google earth placemark

many closed salt mines throughout the world are being used for either storing radioactive and other dangerous goods or more "military" type use
some of these mines have a network of galleries that extend over dozens of km's


the list could go on forever

It will be a good shelter.

But imagine you having it in a country, lets say NK. If only fine day war breaks out, the cool bunker would probably be the first target for some new bunker busting weapon


Reason? Its well built. Must have some very important ppl in it.

Yeah, but this bunker would only be built under "no war time era" whena meteorit would hit earth... BTW, it would be impossible ti fight then, the dust would just make it too hard...

You need bunkers in wartime because they are located where the bombs are going to be. In the case of a meteor strike, given that you know exactly where it is going to hit it's much easier to move people to several thousand miles away. No radioactive fallout or radiation to worry about, so an aboveground settlement will be fine. Depending on the exact effect impact on the climate, food is going to be the big issue.

The better way would be investing the money for the bumker for anti- meteor/comet defence - and you can save whole earth not just few people.

That depends if the rock is radiioactive and as FIN said, lots of dust going to block out sun...

I think nasa was working on something like that.

hmmmm, a bunker for 1 million dudes????, how how many CATs you would need?????, i will go for a sub-terrain nuke


yes, yes i know, then the guys will start with the "radiation issue", but that could be fixed, just a question of ventilation and remove some dirt.....
