Nanotechnology enhanced domed cities versus nuclear weapons

Abstract:
I will explore how a series of dome shells over cities could be made with molecularly precise materials that would be resistant to nuclear weapons.

Note: This is only a speculative thought experiment. Even if you had the required nanotechnology, making the defense system would be a wasteful and provocative act. The economic abundance that can be provided by nanotechnology can be used to remove the motivations and needs for conflicts and arms race competitions. Although I will describe a partially successful defense against some nuclear weapons, a foe that has nukes and decent nanotechnology could defeat this. Plus just building a lot of nukes and firing a sequenced multiple shot would penetrate and damage the protective domes and overwhelm the protection.
