NUKEMAP estimates 8 million casualties in New York if hit by Tsar Bomba

The NUKEMAP estimates everything from possible casualties to fallout.

Real weapons tested by North Korea, Russia and the US are among the explosions that users can simulate.

Even catastrophic bombs like ‘Little Boy’, which killed 166,000 people in Hiroshima in 1945, are testable.

Expert professor Alex Wellerstein came up with the idea of ​​using declassified nuclear weapons effect data.

Since launching it in 2012, the historian has seen 220 million virtual explosions performed on his site.

At one point, he said the site picked up during a visit may have originated in North Korea.

Professor Wellerstein revealed: “It’s a bit interesting to imagine Kim Jong-Un using it.

“Hopefully he’ll look at it and say, ‘oh my god, let’s keep this from happening’.”

People in the US government and military have apparently also tried with it before using the official software.

“I take that as high praise, even if it has certain unpleasant aspects!”

The so-called ‘King of Bombs’, or the maximum design yield of the Tsar Bomba (100 tons) tested by the Soviet Union, proved to be the most common nuclear weapon to be tested. .

For example, if it were deployed in London right now, casualties could amount to more than 5.9 million people.

Dropping it on New York would be even more devastating, with an estimated death toll of more than 8 million.
