Wigner Seeks Bomb Shelters Beneath Cities

Princeton Professor and Nobel Prize-winning physicist Eugene Wigner is calling for networks of underground tunnel bomb shelters to be constructed for the US’s largest cities. Wigner envisions a maze of tunnels five feet below ground that are eight feet in diameter. He sees this system as the most effective and feasible solution to protect mass populations from a nuclear attack and nuclear fallout. Wigner outlined this plan at the Sigma XI honorary scientific society’s monthly meeting.
