    Looks like the MK28 would be just about perfect for Iowa City.

    Let's just hope an asteroid doesn't hit in the U.S. anywhere.

    Hell, if we just stick with the "Little Boy" 15kt and strictly target "University of Iowa," most of Iowa City can be spared. I don't blame Iowa City for the blight that is put upon it by U of I...

    It looks like if it hits Hawaii, Iowa will just miss being hit.

    Yes, I blame Iowa City for the blight that is the University of Iowa.

    Great find, and mind-blowing. Just wondering how you found it.

    Re: Nuke it!

    I figured if Des Moines bought the farm, I would be in for it down here in "Missouri" (Indianola). I guess not. Sorry, Des Moines. I'm just not as worried about you any more.

    And why?

    See.....Ames and Indianola unite.

    It's good to hear that Indianola would survive a strike on DSM. It actually is one of my favorite places.

    It's interesting that the "Ames Research Center" is on the first map that comes up when you click the link.
