What’s In Your Faraday Cage?

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...

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...

Catastrophic Power Outage of a Magnitude Beyond Experience
