Google North Korea

Hmm.. wonder why Google maps just happens to have super high resolution photographs of a wooded area in the middle of North Korea.. You can make out the individual trees. Along with USGS earthquake data, you can pinpoint the location of the "seismic event".

There was some interesting commentary around about this bomb.

Could it be faked? <1KT makes it doable.

Could it have been a failure? Apparently, plutonium nukes are much more complicated, and can "fail" in the sense of being around the size of this explosion rather than 20-100 times bigger.

What it a controlled small test? It would make sense to be a proof-of-concept that uses minimal fissile material.

Was it a suitcase nuke? Fun!

The only question that doesn't need asking is "what will the international community do about it".

The answer is absolutely nothing.
