North Korea performs a nuclear test

Korean Nuclear testAdd another Nuclear military power to the world today as North Korea announces a test of their nuclear capability. South Korean officials have informed the US government as of this posting that they measured 3.58 magnitude seismic activity about the time of the announced test but that there wasn’t any leakage detected. Most likely this post will just be for my personal blog record of events on October 9th, 2006 since news feeds have thousands of updates rolling in. Today promises to be an interesting day in politics and diplomacy. Sadly, the world feels a little less safe knowing North Korea has the ability to produce nuclear weapons.

I posted this prior to my much friendlier summary of our excellent EAA284 meeting on Sunday … but since its not finished and this news came in, I’ll wait until tomorrow.
