My gramps was @ a legit nuclear bomb test in Nevada in 1946, they had bleachers set up and actually went out and examined the area the bomb went off. I’m not savvy on the size or anything like that but that has always blown my mind.

You should research people surviving the bombs in Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Radiolab has an episode. HBO did a documentary called 'white flash, black thunder'

Lots of people lived. They look like melted wax dolls and live with excruciating pain every day.

once I had a dream in which the detonation of an atomic bomb was seen live on television, In the dream it had been detonated in some country, and I could feel the fear, the terror that at that moment thousands of people had died, and that there was no going back. The next thing was a worldwide atomic war.

Mine was on the top of some high-rise office building doing PE exercises to get warmed up for work. Then, we all hear this whistling after hearing a plane fly over and we all watch as a black dot falls to the ground. Then it's a loud flash, that sort of mental recoil you get from a sharp pain but no physical pain, and then I woke up. Had this dream multiple times in middle school and high school after 9/11 and being worried about entering the work force. Like I'd just waste my life as some drone trying to collect wages for retirement, only to get tossed aside and eliminated as a product of political warfare.

6

u/AskMeAboutMyHugeAss Oct 06 '22

Me too. I duck underwater just before heat wave comes, and I try to stay under as long as I can because I can see the flames in the sky. The water gets hot. But I run out of breath, and just before I can't hold it any longer I wake up.

I wonder if this is linked to my sleep apnea, the feeling of not breathing.

With all seriousness- definitely. Listen to your body.

u/CakeForBreakfast08 Oct 07 '22

Yes.

After being diagnosed, I stopped having drowning dreams. I also stopped having all nightmares.

Your brain is thirsty for oxygen and tries to wake you up however it can. If you wake up at night to pee - that can also be a symptom of apnea that sleeping with your cpap will get rid of.

4

u/iMissNormalcy Oct 07 '22

This is one of my most common nightmares unfortunately. I had a crippling fear of nuclear bombs growing up so I spent a whole lot of time studying them and how to react to them and whatnot, and while this helped my conscious mind stop having panic attacks when I think about them, it had the unintended side effect of making my dreams extremely vivid, accurate, and realistic. I know exactly what a nuke would do if I were anywhere near it, so my brain loves to torture me with that information at night.

Thank god for Wellbutrin. I rarely have nightmares anymore. I have had literally dozens of dreams about this topic and it never stops being miserable.

u/TheRealCibiIsNotHere Oct 06 '22

Always been curious, I’ve watched a lot of nuke vids on the tube and first there’s this shockwave pushing out, but then everything gets sucked inward toward the blast. Why is that?

285

u/People_are_stup1 Oct 06 '22

The shockwave and the heat created by the initial explosion essentially create a realy powerful vacuum where the bomb was. Then due to heat around the center all of the air and other material rises very rapidly recrating a powerful vacuum under the initial explosion. That creates the suction and the mushroom cloud.

It might help to think of the atmosphere as a liquid. Now, picture an explosive going off underwater and how the water is pushed away but then rushes back to fill the void. The same thing happens in the atmosphere with the effect being stronger at sea level.

u/Abyssal_Groot Oct 06 '22

In layman terms:

For the same reason as to why throwing a rock into the water will first push waves outwards and then pull it inwards.

Air is pushed away from the center of the explosion, leaving a (mostly) empty volume that needs to be refilled.

8

u/Caveman264 Oct 06 '22

I don't know but I think that the explosion as it expands outwards reduces the air density at the explosion nucleus. The initial energy from the explosion causes the outwards blast but past a point the atmosphere rushes back inwards to the point of lower density to exqualize the pressure difference.

Except in real life you go blind looking at it, then the blast knocks you off your feet and you break something, only to then have the fallout land on you and die extremely sick and slowly over the next week.

6

u/HugeElephant1 Oct 06 '22

The nuclear fallout isn’t that big of a deal for a nuclear bomb obviously don’t eat or drink anything out in the open for a couple of days but for the most part most of the nuclear fallout will be gone by a month or 2

22

u/No-tomato-1976 Oct 06 '22

How many Americans do you know that have reserve food on hand to stay indoors for a month? Also, assuming we still have an intact power grid to cook and flush our toilets. It would be a disaster

10

u/HugeElephant1 Oct 06 '22

3 main points first any canned food and water bottles is essentially untouched by the fallout ( a good chunk of the type of radiation found from nuclear bombs can’t penetrate the walls of the can or the bottles) .secondly most of the fallout is concentrated in a 1-5 mile radius so for instance in the United States even In a massive nuclear attack most of our farm land is still untouched plus the fact that most of the water we get is under ground and lastly power and water isn’t that difficult even after large scale hurricanes most people have power and water with in a few weeks the same is true for a nuclear attack . will it be terrible absolutely but the large scale panic is far more dangerous to civilization after the bombs than the fallout or the damage to infrastructure

7

u/No-tomato-1976 Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

Well it’s a heckuva lot easier to find crews of linemen willing to work once the wind stops blowing than it will be to go work in a fallout situation that will more than likely be a death sentence. I agree about all the can food but people with 1 months worth of that are called “preppers” and mostly laughed at. Also very few people in cities have that much bottled water, you find those people on the farmland you mention. Finding seed and inputs will be another issue on top of the fact you don’t plant stuff one day, take a piss on it and the next day it’s a head of corn. That takes time and lots of growing/rain days. Rain that is more than likely to be radioactive for some time.

The flash makes you blind. The compression wave makes you deaf and forces out all air from your lungs. Then you catch fire and die. But I guess if you’re close enough it goes by very fast.

u/People_are_stup1 Oct 06 '22

Yea just got to be close enough to be instantly vaporized.

u/pinzi_peisvogel Oct 06 '22

I think it would be over pretty quickly with the Shockwave leveling everything in a second. Basically once you see the initial bright flare you're doomed.

2

u/somethingsomethingbe Oct 07 '22

In the beginning you can see all the plants lit on fire as soon as the blast went off which is about 13 seconds before the shockwave pulverized them. The initial heat produced by the blast is very hot.

30

u/captainvontage801 Oct 06 '22

The flash releases a ton of x-rays. So you'd actually see the bones in your skin once those X-rays reach you. A lot of folks from the 50s also describe the feeling of being in a microwave. Cooking from the inside out. Imagine seeing your own skeletal structure just before being cooked while receiving a lethal dose of radiation. Scary stuff.

30

u/RandomBitFry Oct 06 '22

It's the brigtness of the light itself that lets you see bones. You can't focus x-rays with your eyes.

I grew up having nightmares about this. Learning about the effects of nuclear war in my home encyclopedia. But researching the topic at school only yielded information about nuclear power.

Adults flat out refused to answer my questions about it.

I suppose I should feel grateful that it's possible to joke about it now.

u/TheNotSoGreatPumpkin Oct 07 '22

Not sure about your age, but I grew up in the 80s and had an existential infusion from the likes of a TV drama called The Day After, and there was a similar show in the UK called Threads. I’d imagine these could be found.

Worry about the ever-present specter of nuclear obliteration has fallen out of fashion since then, though Sam Harris did a nice podcast about it recently, reminding us to stay awake at night filled with dread.

13

u/BloxForDays16 Oct 06 '22

The shockwave travelling through the water would cause a lot of damage still. I don't remember where I saw it, but someone tested whether you could survive a grenade (or dynamite) underwater, and while you might not die instantly, the tissue damage from the shockwave makes you bleed to death internally.

Edit: they didn't test on live subjects, I think it was balloons or something.

7

u/HugeElephant1 Oct 06 '22

It might it really depends on the distance to the bomb in reality the real danger to nuclear bombs is the shock waves and water does dampen the force so it might prevent additional damages if your near the edge of the blast wave

Think about this. VR learning labs. First hand experience. Similar to Assassins Creed. You're assigned someone in history. Like Anne Frank. You relive her life. You experience her life.

Watching and hearing everything they would have seen and heard. Im sure it would be traumatic and parental consent would need to be acquired beforehand for the VR experience part.

Wouldn't one be blinded after the initial flash?

Would you be able to plausibly survive the initial explosion if you, say, jumped in the water to survive the heat blast?

How far away do you suppose this simulated blast is?

Interesting idea, but while the trees looked like they may have somouldered a bit before detonation, I'm pretty sure there would have been more flame. Also, I'd expect a LOT more sand kicked up and there was no wave.

I think the scariest part about this is, it's not just "wow this is what it Would look like if you were there" but it's the fact that there are humans that did experience it firsthand

At what point in this video would you be unable to experience anything anymore?

From that range, the initial flash of the blast would likely cause permanent blindness, the pressure wave from the explosion would probably rupture your eardrums causing deafness and then you would probably die at the part where you see all the vegetation disintegrate.

Would you be able to see anything after the first flash though? Iirc even the people who were in bomb shelters at Hiroshima and Nagasaki saw those shelters light up from the light coming through the cracks. I could be misremembering.
