Really? Somehow I have the number 100 kiloton in my head. So 22 kiloton
is pretty respectable.

I wonder how one could get at 600 Megatons, that's 30,000 times bigger
than my calculation (if it's right). Sure a colony is more than just a
hollow tube of concrete and titanium, but I don't see a colony having
30,000 times more energy than that.
