According to American intelligence services, Russia is well advanced in developing a nuclear weapon with which it can disable enemy satellites in space. The impact of this would be enormous on a military level, but such a nuclear explosion in space also causes an electromagnetic shock (EMP) that causes traffic lights, bank machines, electric cars, GPS systems, your smartphone and even your heating to no longer work. . According to military science expert Roger Housen, this is particularly worrying: “We would be catapulted back to the time before the internet.”
