Perhaps its similar to the hangover cure of drinking another beer in the morning... Anyway, in terms of all the destruction and debris, they might consider burning everything and rebuilding on the land from scratch. In terms of the powerplant, they should probably consider burying the whole thing in tons of concrete, and encasing it in lead.

Enough already, nuking a nuclear power plant is not an option.

This is fuel grade Uranium and Plutonium/Uranium MOX (Mixed Oxide) , the fallout would be horrendous.

Unlike weapons grade Uranium/Plutonium , fuel grade would not fully fission, rather it would become high speed enriched dust, boosted into the upper atmosphere to contaminate the whole Earth.

What about antimatter bombs or weapons? has anyone got any of them working or lifted one or two from some visiting aliens? That would literally remove the problem. Then there is also the Philadelphia Experiment, not sure how it would work with a building but if we could put that into hyperspace for a few thousand years till it cools of it is another possible option.

These dumbass generals think any problem can be solved with a nuke ...! what about the radiation from the nuke itself ..?? not to mention how is a nuke going to "vaporize" the radioactivity currently in the reactors ..?

I thought the suggestion was made by the Creator of this Thread, and not by any official of Japan what so ever?

OP, I like it.

Of course, I also supported nuking the GOM event, so what does that tell 'ya?



Anyways, I'm with you, I think everything would be vaporized, sounds like the best plan I've heard so far...

Like those dumb retards saying that we should have nuked the Gulf of Mexico last year?

Yeah... real good idea...

Do you have any idea how much nuclear material is at Fukushima? TONS!!!

A hydrogen bomb maybe has 100kg max.

Nuking a nuclear power plant that has 6 reactors, and thousands and thousands of fuel rods is ludicrous. It would kill every living thing in the Northern Hemisphere!!!

The only possible way I could see the Japanese going through this drastic measure would be if the fallout from the reactors was going in the direction of major populated areas, but since the plant is along the coast and the fallout is mainly heading out over the ocean nuking the plant would only make matters much worse and spread more radioactive material from a bomb made with uranium that is much more enriched and radioactive than the fuel rods the plant uses.

I believe this is actually under consideration, If bombs would be used I would wonder if a boron bunker buster could be made and used instead. Or perhaps spray the plumes with boron by plane...

Imagine a great big pile of turd. Then imagine dropping an explosive turd into the pile. What do you get? What the hell do you think you will get.

Definitely in my list of dumbest threads ever.

are you that general guy from the U.S. army that you see in movies who always seems to opt for the nuke it option?

this thread title is quite misleading, how about change it to 'here's a really a dumb idea?'

When you nuke a reactor, you use the reactor's fuel as fissile material in addition to the nuclear weapon and use it all up increasing the nuclear weapon yield.



no you don't because the reactor material isn't at critical mass and can not sustain a chain reaction.


The critical mass is already within the bomb, anything else that reaches the high temperatures will undergo fission.

But is it even possible? The heat from a nuclear blast would far exceed the vapourization point of uranuim by a couple of thousand degrees so would it cause a chain reaction or would it simply vapourize whatever fuel is there? Just sound like a bit like trying to put out a chip pan fire using rocket fuel.


Vapor is a state of matter, like liquid, solid. Just because it is in vapor form does not mean it is not there. It will still be there and still undergo fission.

Any problem can be resolved with the correct application of high explosives.

No, an oxymoron would be SMART retard.

The reason a nuke explodes is that there is enough highly unstable, radioactive material concentrated into one place so that the material can reach critical mass if given a little help, leading to a loco nuclear chain reaction, leading to boom. No critical mass=no chain reaction=no nuclear detonation, full stop, the end.

The fireball and blast wave from a groundburst or low air burst would most likely incinerate the radioactive material (which would still be radioactive) and suck it up into the mushroom cloud, dispersing the incinerated fuel with the rest of the radioactive fallout. Mind you, the fuel at that power plant is apparently quite nasty stuff even considering that it already shares chemical company with a few sure killers; such a scenario could create a kind of uberfallout, and wherever it landed would be blighted for a mindbogglingly long time.
