Dr. Karl Neuhaus:
As soon as I heard of the ultimatum, I subjected myself to a fatal overdose of gamma radiation.
While there are places in the South Pacific, such as Point Nemo, that are more than 1500 miles from land, there would likely be ships within the capsule's 7 million square mile kill zone. Also, it is not clear how Neuhaus was delivered to the test point given the time course of the story. At full speed, a 1950's USN destroyer would take more than 5 days to get to Point Nemo from San Diego and another 2.5 days to get out of the kill zone.
