Will EMP Fry the Electronic Keypad Lock on my Safe?

Will EMP Fry the Electronic Keypad Lock on my Safe?

Awhile ago I received this question from a reader: Saw some articles on EMP (my biggest fear). In a moment of stupidity I bought a gun safe with a electronic lock instead of a dial lock. I just can’t get it out of my head that this will be a epic disaster if an...
Best Color Temperature For Security Lights

Best Color Temperature For Security Lights

Quickly, before I recommend a specific color temperature for outdoor security lights or motion lights, let me briefly explain a few things: ( In a hurry? Jump straight to the answer ) What is light? Well, light is a electromagnetic wave or a mixture of various...

EMP Preparedness For The Non-Prepper And For The Prepper

image: Starfish Prime from Honolulu   I was recently emailed the question, I am working on a paper which is based around EMP attack probabilities, and what to do if one were to occur. What would you suggest to do in such a situation for someone who is not a...

What To Do If An EMP Strikes While You Are At Work

A high altitude EMP (electromagnetic pulse) is something that has not happened before (yet) by way of a purpose-built weapon designed to emphasize the natural occurring byproduct of a nuclear explosion – a pulse of energy that in theory will destroy much of the...

Nuclear EMP Components E1, E2, E3, and what they mean…

An EMP – a nuclear electromagnetic pulse is a burst of electromagnetic radiation from a nuclear explosion. A nuclear weapon that is detonated hundreds of kilometers above the earth will produce an EMP which will produce damaging and likely catastrophic current...

What To Store In A Faraday Cage For EMP Protection?

An EMP, or electromagnetic pulse, is thought to be a highly unlikely event. And it might be. On the other hand, no one can predict with any certainty one way or the other…if and when we get ‘zapped’ into a pre-high-tech age in which many or most of...
Thoughts Regarding Faraday Cage Techniques For An EMP

Thoughts Regarding Faraday Cage Techniques For An EMP

As many of you know, an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) could end life as we know it in approximately one hundredth of a microsecond. Faster than the blink of an eye. While some may argue the likelihood of such an event, lets focus instead on the methods one might...
EMP – Can This Happen?

EMP – Can This Happen?

Is the following scenario plausible? A well financed proxy terrorist group has struck the United States. They have successfully launched a modified Scud short range ballistic missile which was hidden inside a specifically and purposely designed shipping container...
Nuclear Super EMP

Nuclear Super EMP

The Super-EMP weapon exists, and we apparently know that at least Russia, N.Korea, and China have them. Perhaps others? Are Iran’s nuclear centrifuges (apparently thousands of them are enriching uranium) – spinning up a Super-EMP? A Super-EMP is a...
Safe Temperature For Cooking Meat

Safe Temperature For Cooking Meat

Safe cooking is essential in preventing foodborne illness. You can’t see, smell, or taste harmful bacteria that may cause illness, so cook all meat to these minimum internal temperatures to destroy germs and pathogens as measured with a food thermometer before...
High Altitude  EMP

High Altitude EMP

Any nuclear detonation above 25 miles will cause a high altitude EMP (electromagnetic pulse). A nuclear weapon detonated at an altitude of 200 miles could affect all unprotected electrical equipment within the continental United States. Nuclear weapons at that...
