What if: Dirty Bomb Attack

A “dirty bomb” is a crude method for spreading radiation over a substantial area. It does not create a nuclear blast. It is made by packing dynamite or some other conventional explosive with virtually any type of radioactive material. When the explosive is detonated, it spews the radioactive material over the surrounding area.
