Neat. I always thought the time-stretched explosion sounds of Trinity & Beyond didn't make physical sense. Its a brief sonic boom followed shortly by wind noise.
Turns out that (contrary to no-threshold linear model) slight irradiation seems to reduce cancer & mortality risk. Radiation hormesis is a pretty fascinating subject:
I'm not discounting the suffering of those in the immediate fallout zones, nor am I saying I'd build a house at Guarapari Beach, Brazil (790 mSv/y) or Ramsar, Iran (700 mSv/y).
Just that the literature on much smaller doses is fairly surprising (to someone who took the no-threshold linear model as obviously true).

It's a real shame human civilization wasn't destroyed by a nuclear war back when it was still fashionable to do so. On the other hand, I've got a real good feeling about Iran and North Korea.
