    You might notice an improvement in the roads, a nice smooth glassy finish [​IMG]

    Depending upon the prevailing weather conditions, the detonation can often provoke a brief spell of localised precipitation after the explosion.

    This, with the 'glassy smooth finish' on the road surfaces, could lead to reduced grip.

    This would, obviously, need to be considered when risk assessments are undertaken.

    Very interesting site. I've had one or two arguments with locals around here who insisted that the satellite station was a 'prime target' and we'd all go under if it got hit. I argued that the prime target would be Cheltenham, (or Fort Meade in the US) which would render outlying stations pretty much useless.
    I've tested a strike on the station with this site and it would need to get to the Nagasaki bomb range (20 Kilotons, this was the second plutonium bomb detonated, the first one being the Trinity test site in the USA, the Hiroshima bomb was a Uranium Gun design) before it would disturb the pub, and even then you might have time to order in a quick pint. :P
    If you got to the megatonnage range with thermonuclear weapons, well ... game over. ( Not that I want to test these ideas for real.) :eek:
