Electromagnetic Pulse or EMP and the E1, E2 and E3 Components

E1 vs E2 vs E3, Oh My!
When a Nuclear Weapon is detonated in the atmosphere it produces Gamma Radiation which ionizes atoms in the upper atmosphere. This is typically part of the E1 Pulse. In this article we will look at the three types of energy pulse created during an Electromagnetic Pulse or EMP.

E1 Pulse – Like a thief in the night…
The E1 pulse is the very fast component of nuclear EMP. E1 is a brief but intense electromagnetic field that induces high voltages in electrical conductors. E1 causes most of its damage by causing electrical breakdown voltages to be exceeded. E1 can destroy computers and communications equipment and it changes too quickly ( several nanoseconds) for ordinary surge protectors to provide effective protection from it. Fast-acting surge protectors (acting in less than 1-10 nanoseconds) will block the E1 pulse, like those produced by www.empshield.com of Burlington, Kansas.

Death Rays from the Sun? The Carrington Event & Coronal Mass Ejections.

Could Our Own Sun be the next Extinction level Event?
A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is a large expulsion of plasma and magnetic field from the Sun’s corona. According to data gathered from the SOHO solar observatory satellite, during the solar maximum period of our 11-year solar cycle, our Sun emits between 14 to 21 Coronal Mass Ejections per week! They can eject billions of tons of coronal material and carry an embedded magnetic field that is stronger than the background solar wind interplanetary magnetic field strength. As a saving grace, not all Coronal Mass Ejections are directed at the Earth and aren’t all strong enough to cause serious danger.
