Mindsmog you would do well to do some research before you post so that you do not look so foolish, not everyone here is a moron...
Besides your links not working when you said,
Ok maybe I didn't realise the different types of nuke we were talking about , Duke you are quoting the testing of Hydrogen bombs or thermonuclear
nukes which are not as powerful as a pure fission Nuke.
you were and are, completely wrong in every respect. Pure fission bombs are the simplest bombs, they are the kind first dropped on Japan to end
Hydrogen bombs are thermonuclear bombs, they use a fission reaction to starta fusion reaction and produce far more
damage than a pure fission
Anyone with any basic knowledge of nuclear weapons knows this.
For a simple overview look here link
For detailed knowledge look here
If you would look at the links I posted you would see a break down of wind speeds. Depending on the weapon, past 15-20 miles there is not a massive
wind to contend with.
