  • In the event of a nuclear blast, let’s face it: you’re probably screwed.
  • Fortunately, the good researchers at the University of Nicosia decided to simulate a nuclear bomb explosion to see how it would affect people taking shelter indoors, and while the results may be grim, their findings just might increase your odds of surviving.
  • For the study, published this week in the journal Physics of Fluids, the researchers focused on a 750 kiloton nuclear warhead detonated almost two miles above ground, delivered by an intercontinental ballistic missile.
