What’s In Your Faraday Cage? Guest article by Bogan – Regular MSB readers have been well exposed to the theory and application of Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) and Coronal Mass Injection (CME) contingencies. Science seems to be divided on the issue of the extent such scenarios will affect sensitive electronics and long term survival and opinions…

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 EMP…

Your Tiny World Without Communication & Transportation

Your Tiny World Without Communication & Transportation

Thinking once again about hypothetical results from an event or events that may happen in our future: The loss of our electrical grid. That is, power grid infrastructure damage either from man made circumstances (EMP, electromagnetic pulse) or that from our own nearby fireball, the sun (CME, Coronal Mass Ejection). This time however I thought…

When Homes And Buildings Burn During The Next Solar SuperStorm

When Homes And Buildings Burn During The Next Solar SuperStorm

One thing is for certain, there will be another solar flare “SuperStorm” similar or worse than the Carrington Event of 1859. One day again there will be an exceptionally mammoth explosion on the sun – a solar flare producing a colossal cloud of charged electromagnetic particles headed directly towards the Earth. Also known as a…

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

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 electronics infrastructure within its explosive ‘line of sight’. The devastating EMP…

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 and voltage surges to electrical / electronic equipment and systems. While exploring the possibilities…
