"Hail the Mini-Nuke"
"A new generation of nuclear weapons – mini nukes is being planned by America. According to the US military, they need miniature nukes in the war against terrorism So they’re designing bunker busting weapons that can burrow down into the earth carrying a mini- nuke which would wipe out some rogue dictator’s control centre or destroy stores of chemical and biological weapons. And the military says, because these mini-nuke bunker busters will go off underground, the nuclear fall out from them will never escape. But the mini nukes have a lot of critics amongst them physicist Richard Slakey who says they won’t be able to burrow deep enough and more worryingly that the radiation fallout cannot be contained."
I read a bit about this subject and found out that a 1kT Nuke needs to penetrate 300m of hard rock to produce no fallout, an Nuke that is detonatet at less depth will blow the nuclear polluted dirt into the air and produces a much heaviere fallout than any in the air detonatet nuke...
todays "bunkerbusters" are able to penetrate max. 15m of rock
the depth of 300m can physikaly not be reached with any balistic system...
I think US Gov. is playing with the Devil again... hope they wont ever use one of them
now I dont whant to start an thread full of flaming and political discussions, this is the wrong forum for that kind of conversation, I let everyone have his own opinion on this subject but also want my opinion be acceptet.
But i would really enjoy some technical C&C on this Pic
