A bit morbid to play with, don't you think? The only plus side is that I feel pretty safe in my flyover state. Since it would a low casualty rate and low impact effect I'd assume it's an unlikely target.

I live between the ridges in Tennessee. Y-12's location was picked because the ridges would deflect the blast during a nuclear accident.  8)

With the false alarm in Hawaii I thought I would bump this thread.

Seriously!!! I will let the Oak Ridge historian who works at Y-12 know he is wrong when I see him again   ::)


Much of what originally brought people to Oak Ridge can still be seen: three of four plants used to produce material for the atomic bomb survive. These buildings are within 30 minutes of the city center, on what are today the sites of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Department of Energy East Tennessee Technology Park, and the Y-12 National Security Complex. On weekdays, the Department of Energy (DOE) operates a three-hour bus tour of these facilities, isolated in a 17-mile-long valley studded by parallel ridges—a major reason the spot was chosen for the Manhattan Project in the first place. If a catastrophic explosion occurred, the ridges would act as buffers between the plants.
