For many years he studied the old government reports on possible consequences of the use of atomic bombs. In the course of these studies, he began to apply the relevant mathematical equations with respect to the maps from Google Maps. And there was a project Nukemap.
Nukemap – is a special plugin for Google Earth, which allows a three-dimensional mode to see a nuclear explosion at any desired location. The user can even specify a specific point on the streets of New York or any other city, where he will enjoy it. After the explosion, the service calculates and its consequences – the radius of destruction, the level of radioactive particles remaining in place, the number of casualties and destruction.
At the same time Alex Vellershteyn claims that all the data that he used when creating Nukemap, are shared.
