DontMakeMeComeBackThere: I really wonder what the response would be if somebody (I'm looking at you Iran) were to REALLY set off a nuke (in space or not).Would we all just try to regroup, and then determine what to do about it...or would we just immediately remove the offending country from the map?I'd lean toward the latter.

kcfarker: I would love to install an EMP in my vehicle.Imagine waiting at a stop-light and the imbecile at the front of the line has his nose buried in his phone, two-finger typing a banal response to an otherwise innocuous text message, paying zero attention to his surroundings.

Too Pretty For Prison: So, according to the article, I should be afraid these guys are going to put a bomb in the upper atmosphere and detonate it to kill all electronics? That would be great - my kids might actually have time to TALK to me.
Civil Discourse: I could be missing something, but wouldn't a state or anyone else with the technology to launch a nuclear weapon into space also be at risk from such an attack?
