how to survive an atomic bomb

Scientists told how you can try to survive a nuclear strike in the first minutes and hours after what happened. Although the risk of a full-scale conflict with nuclear weapons is low, there are certain probabilities of its beginning.

Russia and the United States may turn out to be potential participants in the confrontation. Washington uses W88 warheads against its adversary, with a yield of 475 kt. When hitting cities, the projectile will detonate at an altitude of about 2 km. As soon as a flash is noticed in the sky, you need to try to take cover, since the peak of its damaging effect lasts the first 5 seconds. If you hide from the light right away, you have a chance to survive. In the absence of suitable places nearby, you can throw yourself directly to the ground, lowering your face down, and hiding your hands under your body. If at this moment a person remains in the room, you can climb under the table below the window line.

Earth has the shape
 

It turns out that the Earth is not globular, as most people think. According to scientists, it has the shape of an elongated ellipsoid.

According to the scientific explanation, the constant rotation of the planet provokes the appearance of centrifugal force, as a result, it manifests itself much more strongly at the equator than at the poles themselves. As a result, a small flattening occurs, and the diameter that passes through the equator grows in size by 43 km. In addition to centrifugal force, the Earth is also affected by the mass, unevenly distributed over the surface, and gravitational anomalies.


Earth has the shape of an elongated ellipsoid

Since ancient times, people have attributed to the planet a variety of shapes from a flat pancake to a uniform circle. However, these two theories are not accurate within the framework of modern science. Scientists clarify that due to all the above circumstances, the planet is an elongated ellipsoid. This is reported by the publication Planet Today.
