Nuclear Explosion in Space…What Does It Look Like?

On July 9th 1962, the U.S detonated a nuclear weapon, dubbed Starfish Prime, over 386,000 meters (240 miles) in the sky – with an explosive yield of 1.45 megatons, roughly 100 times stronger than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

The ‘controlled’ explosions were one of 5 suborbital tests conducted by the U.S during the Cold War and the nuclear arms race, as part the effects of nuclear weapons in high altitudes/outer space. Once detonated, the warheads generate not only heat and light, but incredible amounts of X- and gamma rays. Effects of the blast were felt thousands of kilometres away, and still resonant today.

In a short period of time, the effects of the bomb were felt from Hawaii to New Zealand, as planes experienced electrical surges, lamplight’s were blown out and a giant aurora bloomed in the sky. An electromagnetic field was created above the earth, far larger than scientists predicted, as electrons were excited and accelerated to incredible speeds.
