The US Geological Survey has noted seismic activity—a magnitude 5.1 earthquake—near a known North Korean nuclear test center. The last time this happened, it was thanks to the underground detonation of a nuclear device.
Oh my. This is beyond scary. A mile-long train carrying crude oil derailed near a small town in North Dakota and sent explosions, flames and dark black smoke into the sky. Luckily (and almost unbelievably), no one was hurt in the accident that looked a lot more like a nuke exploding than a train derailment. Thank god.
To the naked eye, the photo above doesn't seem to show anything more than a couple of bland houses against a deary landscape. But a prominent nuclear-weapons researcher thinks it might display the concealment of Iran's nuclear program. All this over a few water stains.[top]
This is a Google Maps Satellite View of Yucca Flat, one of the Nevada Nuclear Test Sites. Over 739 nuclear tests were run between 1951 and 1992 which has left the region scarred and pockmarked to this day.
The scariest thing is that building your own nuke doesn't seem as hard as it should be. Dangerous and expensive? Yes. Impossible? Not so much. Kim Jong Il, please don't read this.
What's wrong with that video from last night? Things seems a bit skewed, distorted, and wiggly-jiggly. No, I'm not focused on that redhead in the tiny pink shirt, I'm talking about a fixable issue with CMOS-based video cameras.
Really interested in what kind of nuclear rocket capability North Korea has? The Bulletin does a really in-depth analysis of the latest launch, based on released and carefully reasoned interpolated data.
Good news people! The US army has confirmed that Israel has their very own circumcised version of Dr Manhattan's schlong. Sources estimate a collection of 200 to 400 nuclear warheads.
It must be the two hundred and twenty-three times I've watched War Games, but I love this Google Maps "mapplet" that allows you to nuke cities with different atomic weapons, and even a Chicxulub-class asteroid.
Tell me where the bomb is! The guys at bit-tech tried to create a custom-build case that looked exactly like a bomb on 24. The result? Explosive chrome goodness.
