How far underground would I need to be to survive a nuclear explosion?
Lets say a Nuclear bomb went off above ground and I was underground, would I have to be a mile or so underground to survive or about how far?
I mean if I was directly underneath the explosion.
Depending how far away from ground zero you are , you wouldn’t have to be very far underground at all. The main things you would need to survive is water, fresh air or a way to recycle air and plenty of food. If you were to go out into the fallout for any reason you would need a protective suit of some sort and you could not be out for very long at all. Some of the missile silos here in the US that are manned are only about 100 feet underground but they are lead lined and fortified.There are even some for sale, You can do a search for Missile bases for sale or missile basses.com
