I often have wondered what it would be like to see a nuclear missile hit the moon. I think if it was done it would be quite a spectacular sight. Why well the main reason is to do further studies on the moon's composition and density but the explosion would be a great show I think we would see the flash with the naked eye and the dust debris would be very interesting I'm sure the dust would radiate out to a very large area due to the absence of atmosphere. I will let you know when I'm about to launch.
I think that it's time for you to return the nurses phone.

OK but no nuclear launches.
No point. Nukes have been exploded in space, in the atmosphere, and underground. What could you possibly learn from exploding one on or near the surface in a fairly good vacuum 250,000 miles away, that we don't already know? The only known use of nuclear explosives is to kill people and destroy buildings, and there are none on the moon.
Would the electromagnetic pulse be big enough to fry our smartphones?
seeing all that dust plume and heat may give us a better perspective of the scale of things.
A 10 megaton bomb is small beer compared with an everyday hurricane. Hurricanes cost nothing and you can get right up close if you want to.
But I think that means that the only objects in the universe where we could see a small nuke from Earth are the Moon and, of course, the Earth itself.
A nuke on the moon would alter its orbit. Unlike earth it has no atmosphere to cushion the blast so would escape the moons gravity.

I think "just thinking" should be transported to the Moon with the next availale vehicle so that he could send us a first hand report
