I think Tsar bombing an object of that size would create a hundred+ moderate meteors to rain down on individual cities.
I'd thought about that and why I'd looked so hard into fireball size which, as I understand things, is the size of the area that essentially
vaporizes. The outer ring as shown on the Paris map would be more the blasted into pieces range, as I'm reading it. So... a few of these? Heck, like
I said though, the blow back from the detonations at only 600-700 miles over our heads would probably be worse than the object just coming on in for a
clean impact. At that size, anyway.....
I couldn't find anything about Nuclear detonations in space. Has anyone seen anything suggesting a space nation might have tried one away from Earth
somewhere along the way? I'm just wondering, if something at 50 Megatons did that inside the atmosphere...I wonder if it would be fatally out of the
question as a space detonation that close, anyway.
Of course this is all speculating about weapons that we know once existed, but aren't supposed to exist anymore anyway. It's probably moot. Without
the insanely big ones like Tsar Bomba and the fireball radius of a couple miles...I don't see it working either.
