Well shit, I guess they got out of the city. I thought I just checked the site earlier this year and didn't see anything new.

There was an April Fool's page a couple years back where they actually did make it out, only to discover civilization had recovered and kept the city as a memorial to the war. I thought that would've been a fine place to end the comic, well, but here we are.

But more on topic, how do they even calculate stuff like hypothetical planets made of blueberries?

Yes, it's real

(it's actually a local tl;dr of a Popular Mechanics article from the previous year, and that article was based on legitimate scientific research by a Swedish scientist in 1896, Svante Arrhenius - the same man who coined the phrase "greenhouse gases").
