Found: uses for your spare nukes

RadioactiveThe Wired Blog has a great post entitled "7 (Crazy) Civilian Uses for Nuclear Bombs" which is pretty scary. Not just that people came up with these ideas, but that most of them were tested. I'm pretty sure if we researched the medical files of those involved, most of them would have succumbed to cancer from exposure to all that radiation. Ick.

Anybomb, my absolute favourite idea is the second-last one: using 1,000 nuclear bombs to propel a rocket into space. Sounds super safe! LOL
