NUKEMAP3D is an interactive map that lets users nuke any city with your favourite warhead. Users can select a city, the size of the bomb in kilotons (the app also provides a number of presets, including the 100 mt Tsar Bomba), and the viewing location (e.g., ground height, airplane height, etc). The program then uses Google Earth to simulate the unfortunate event.

The simulator was developed by Alex Wellerstein, an Associate Historian specializing in nuclear weapons and nuclear secrecy at the Center for History of Physics at the American Institute of Physics.
