PostSubject: North Korean Nukes Getting Bigger   Sun Feb 17, 2013 8:29 am



North Korea's nuclear bombs are getting a lot bigger, say civilian seismologists who have been calculating the energy of the rogue state's bomb tests using the same methods applied to measuring earthquakes.

Based on data from the nearest non-classified seismological station in China, the Feb. 11 nuclear test was found to have had the energy equivalent of a 5.1-magnitude earthquake, which is about equal to an explosion of 7.3 kilotons of TNT, according to Won-Young Kim of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO). That measurement jives with statements released by the South Korean Defense Ministry and Director of National Intelligence, James R. Clapper, Jr.

For comparison, that's less than half the explosive power of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nakasaki in 1945. That said, the explosion is two or three times more powerful than North Korea's 2009 test and several times more powerful than that country's first test in 2006.
