5.6M artificial quake

SEOUL, Sept. 3 (Yonhap) -- A magnitude 5.6 earthquake was detected in northern North Korea on Sunday, South Korea's weather agency said, in an indication of Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test.


Uh oh!

indeed,looks like Kim may have that hydrogen bomb he was bragging about.

Maybe not. Id be interested in what the sats picked up. Especially if very specific wavelength was present.

RE: www.foxnews.com...

I was thinking the same thing. Kim Jong is really attempting to provoke us to launch a pre-emptive attack. I hope the U.S. doesn't take the bait. If he wants war, let him make the first strike. (China says that if North Korea starts the war, they will stay out of it.)

That's what I was thinking too.

On a side note: I wonder how much more, geological stress wise, the region can take before a huge disaster!

How and what does a nuclear bomb usually register

We can pre emptively strike north korea with no consequences from china or the rest of the world. Wouldnt be the first time china backed down and got suddenly insecure when the usa dropped its trow to show just how big its stick really is.

It depends on the bomb itself, component wise/size wise.

USGS
Just saw it too. I checked the depth and it was 0 so I knew it couldn't be good.

I have 0 clue as I am no geologist but this may have registered as 10x greater than previous tests indicating a stronger weapon being tested,seeing as Kim was bragging he had a hydrogen bomb then this it's a good bet that this is what it is.
I read the depth was 0 km pretty good indicator as well this was an explosion and not earthquake or Kim thrashing about on the floor having a tantrum because he couldn't have seconds for dinner.

all you have to do is look at the test ranges near area 51 and see how much punishment the land can take,it can take a lot.

Two tremors recorded in NK

According to the Korean media, a termor with the 5.6 magnitude was detected in Gilju-gun, North Hamgyeong Province around noon on Sunday. Another quake on scale of 4.6 was detected an hour and a half later on the test site.
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) said the first tremor was 6.3 on the exponential scale, suggesting a far bigger test than before. The location of the epicenter was near the site where the North had detonated nuclear explosions in the past.
Chinese authorities also confirmed the detection of a quake, measuring its magnitude at 6.3.


Far bigger test than before eh?

It's getting real! (er)

I would say the government knows exactly what kind of bomb was detonated. We can detect radiation from other stars, we can detect radiation from earth with satellites also.
Maybe soon man will finally understand why you shouldn't try to pop the bubble that you live on. But I am sure someone would have a very good reason to want to start a nuclear war. That reason would be somewhat relate-able to psychopathy.

Let me guess, China is helping them and sharing the tech with Iran

I wonder if he has the testicular fortitude to actually carry out a strike against Guam like he was saying he would. He said he had a Hydrogen bomb and he proved it,think he is going to prove Guam as well?

That may be so - but it's not like area 51 is as close to volcanic/geologically unstable areas as NK's testing site is!

Yep, Kim is trolling..don't fall for it by attacking preemptively, if a preemptive attack is made it's not going to be good..and when I say not good..I mean really, really bad.

To be fair - a preemptive attack by other side is not going to be good.

Diplomacy is failing and military solution looks catastrophic. I'm stumped at how this could end peacefully without blood shed.
