“I wonder if I live in a place that’ll survive a nuclear bomb” is something we used to ask in the 1960s and 70s, and it seems to have come back into vogue. Back then, we had to do things like go to the library and do research. But now, we can sit in the comfort of our potentially safe homes and check the Would I Survive a Nuke website. Spoiler: I probably won’t in Boulder, but you might be more lucky. The site is getting hit pretty hard, so you may have to try a few times. Seems a lot of people are really interested in knowing their potential fate.

    There’s another site that does this with a bit more detail: NUKEMAP

    This site gives more control over bomb yield, burst height, fallout, etc.

    Tried accessing the above URL on 3 MACs and come up with the following error:

    This page didn’t load Google Maps correctly. See the JavaScript console for technical details.

    Updated Java for all three and still the same error message. Same result with Safari and Firefox.
