so, a simple nuke would be one cobic foot of sunmetal, 1 cubic foot of orchium, and a circut set for contact or some such... then dump the charge into the sunmetal... nasty. I would ask, could a lead transformer input be used as a sort of decontamination system? or hell a nuke shield(super buffed lead plated ship, each plate being a lead input transformer. when you get nuked the radiation is absorbed into puristance... make a couple if you want to be sure.)?
