It's about Soviet EMP's and the target, USA.

Long article, but worth the time!

instrumentation to measure the effects on the ground from a blast that was some 400 kilometers in altitude.


The above is from your link.... But I think 400 kilometers in altitude from Sea level is in the middle of space outside of the atmosphere of this planet....

I cant imagine that we have exploded a nuclear weapon in space....

This shows a single weapon detonated at the northwest corner of Iowa, and it shows it at about 600 kilometers high, and this would blanket all of the United States.

Thats even farther out.....So far in fact that you would have to have some serious mega tonnage to even damage anything within that range ON EARTH. Let alone in space where you have a 360 degree field effect, which is much less effective then a mid air burst that use the ground to compress the shock wave of the blast.


What a load of crap that is, there is no way to produce that much EMP energy to knock out every electronic device in America with just one high altitude nuclear detonation.... no way

The US Military was so worried about such effects from burst at extremely high altitudes that the only US ABM system (which would have had multiple-megaton detonations at altitudes of several hundred miles) was taken off alert after only 1 day of operation.

Oh, and both the US and Russia have tested nuclear weapons at very high altitudes, high enough to start to see these effects.

Here are some links, but most of the good stuff is almost certainly classified.

I've always wanted to see a nuke in space or blow up in air, 360 degree explosion, cool fire ball...A proper fireball..

No fireball in space, just a brief flash of light, and that's it (with the accompanying radiation of course). Without an atmosphere there's nothing to support combustion.

Star Wars Monkeys, not just for special effects anymore...
