I assure you, 1 bullet hole is alot better and easier to deal with and survive than many.
But if the spread causes 2 of the 3 slugs to miss then that is the better option.
Better yet, what if it doesn't break it up but just forces it into a different direction?
You could never guarantee that even one grain of dust would be forced away, this isn't an exact science, this isn't like the movies.
Nukes in a vacuum are little more than expensive fireworks, they are nothing like in atmosphere, where the shockwave flattens giant swaths of land,
and the heat persists in the air keeping it trapped long enough to burn everything.
Space is a vacuum, it will gladly eat up all the explosion and ask for more.
Space if very cold, and has no air to hold the heat it, it will be hot for the 1 second of the blast than just above absolute zero again the next, as
the void sucks all the heat away.
Your not thinking this through very well at all.
I can tell though that you have made up your mind to believe that a nuke is some all powerful force that can destroy mountains etc... so I will not
further argue the point with you.
Just one final thought for you, all our nukes combined are not even as powerful as the Krakatoa volcanic eruption a couple hundred years ago, and it
didn't even totally destroy the island it was on, which was not that big to begin with.
What do you think it would take to destroy a rock say the size of Hawaii? I assure you, thousands of times the worlds nukes combined are not enough,
not by far.
