In a recent interview George Lucas responds to the entire "nuke the fridge" issue in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
For those not familiar with the situation:
Indy is in a town with nobody around, and finds he's near an nuclear test site and an atom bomb is about to go off. When he realizes this, he opens a refrigerator and hides in it, closing the door after him. The bomb goes off and the fridge is thrown hundreds of feet from where it was standing as well as being thrown way up into the air. It comes down and "bounces" along the ground, leaving Indy far enough away to survive the blast (as well as the impact).
For this to happen, there are at least two serious problems (and this ignores the fact that at that time fridge doors latched and could not be opened from the inside):
1. The fridge would have to survive an atomic blast. It wasn't at the center, but it wasn't too far out. The town constructed for the test was blown to pieces.
2. Indy would have had to survive being hurled a great distance and falling from a great height while inside the fridge. When the fridge hits, he also hits the fridge sides, and his internal organs would hit his bones and harder tissue, also causing damage. The fridge would not protect against that.
Now Lucas is saying that about 50% of the scientists that comment on this say that this could have happened and Indy could have survived. How is this even possible? Are there any sources that actually explain how Indy could have survived this experience intact?
