I think the US would have DSP satellites in the area to monitor for any type of test. In the 60's-80's we used to fly a modified KC-135 to monitor for atmospheric tests...

Does any one know of a U-2 that was modified to monitor tests?

Here is "news" from North-Korea :

News from KOREAN CENTRAL NEWS AGENCY of DPRK

Nothing about the explosion (yet, anyway).


Other interesting headlines:

"End to U.S. Occupation of S. Korea Urged"

and

"Pyongyang Ready for Film Festival"

("The festival organizing committee has completed the translation of scripts, titles and explanations of films, etc.")
Hmm... really "filmfestival" or speaking in codes here...?

Its all coming out very slowly.

I'm no expert but it was just "picked up" by a satellite that happened to be in the area. Yeah right. Satellite tasking is expensive business and you have a dam good reason for putting it on a path that'd take it over worthless space.

We knew about this.

Right.... if this was a nuke, wouldn't there be an EMP? That would mess up soem pretty serious stuff, such as satellites, observation stations, etcs?

This was looked at by satelite. Don't know if they were up there before hand, but we more then likely heard about it very shortly afterward.


The explosion in Kim Hyong Jik county blasted a crater big enough to be noticed by a satellite, the source said.

Yes, my son is asleep and I can't get to my books, but the U2 was modified to launch off of a carrier (USS America if I recall) to collect particles from a French test. I will try to put up more info on this in the AM.

EMPs from nukes, especially one this small (relative) are rather small. It wouldn't have any effect out side of the blast area.

There have been quite a few nuclear explosions the past 50 years...
The result of these tests might be the messed up weather we see nowadays.
Global warming?
Hurricanes?

CNN is reporting US officials saying it was not a nuclear blast, but a forrest
fire?!?!


SEOUL, South Korea (CNN) -- A large cloud that appeared over North Korea in satellite images several days ago was not the result of a nuclear explosion, according to a U.S. official.

Coming from the same people who brought you the "exploding flashlight" excuse.

Thats what I just found.......

North Korea cloud 'not nuke blast'
SEOUL, South Korea (CNN) -- A large cloud that appeared over North Korea in satellite images several days ago was not the result of a nuclear explosion, according to a U.S. official.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency is reporting a huge explosion shook North Korea's northernmost province on Thursday producing a mushroom cloud over two miles (4 km) wide.

The blast coincided with the anniversary of North Korea's founding on Sepember 9 when various military activities are staged.

The U.S. official said the cloud could be the result of a forest fire.READ MORE....

Forrest fires burn for days and weeks, and don;t leave craters. Nuclear explosions ignite forrest fires though.

Of course they'll say this...complete upset and turmoil would result in the States if the gov't came out and told them it was a nuclear test. My one problem with this is why it wasn't reported elsewhere. I mean...nuclear bombs are pretty massive, and it is usually known when one is set off. But with the suppsed with of the cloud...it has to be a nuke or something of that magnitude. If it is a nuke, it surely makes things extremely interesting with N. Korea. I'm also surprised S. Korea isn't making a really huge statement about this blast. You would think they would since they are knocking distance next door.

I knew I remembered this. US intelligence does believe that NK has missiles capable of hitting the West Coast.


While testifying at a Senate committee hearing in Washington, CIA Director George Tenet was asked whether North Korea had a ballistic missile capable of reaching the U.S. West Coast.

Before answering, Tenet turned to very quickly consult with aides sitting behind him.

"I think the declassified answer, is yes, they can do that," Tenet said.


www.cnn.com...


Yep, with the Taepodong 2 NKU is capable of attacking the west coast of the US. The Taepodong 1 is capable of reaching to Alaska. They have been developing the Taepodong 2 for quite some time, though I am not sure if it's actually been finalized and reached production yet.

Anyway, the NKU is extremely dangerous. It is run by a sociopath and the society is so ignorant and brainwashed that they will believe anything he says. It's a gigantic personality cult. If you ever get a chance to see a documentary by foreigners about North Korean society, watch it....I watched one where the camera crew was escorted around the country by these government tour guides who bulls****ed the whole thing and denied that millions of people were starving and that the country was in perfect order. It's actually quite impressive.

What's an FAE bomb, anyway?

Hey I am only reporting what they said... for all I know it may have been a huge kimchi pot disaster....

This isn't starting to sound to pleasant. The clues are pointing towards a nuclear test. A nuclear explosion so close to the founding date of his communist regime seems a likely date. Trying to flex thier atomic arm and rally support, I hope its all misunderstanding.

Did anyone bother to check the weather?

Well I did.


Sept 9th had a high of only 85 degrees and a low of 58 with temperature sitting the mid 60's all day.

Its not exactly massive forest fire material.
