People living in Southern Utah are disagreeing with the plan to detonate 700 tons of explosives in the Nevada desert.
Known as the "Divine Strake," the blast is planned to take place about 85 miles northwest of Las Vegas. It's expected to generate a 10,000-foot mushroom cloud, and a shock wave that may be felt dozens of miles away.
The Utah residents are also concerned the blast could stir up radioactive components left over from atomic tests performed in the 1950s and early 1960s.
