Nuclear Blast on Moon Would Also Have Columnar Shape

Editorial by Sterling D. Allan

On May 16, the New York Times quoted physicist, Leonard Reiffel, as saying that if the U.S. had detonated a nuclear bomb on the moon as they were proposing back in 1958, then the blast "would have flown out in all directions rather than in the usual mushroom shape."

King Nuclear Explosion

Not so, according to a new unified field theory being set forth by physicist David W. Allan, renowned for his work in ultra-precise time and frequency measurement and propagation, having spend 32 years working with the Atomic clock in Boulder Colorado.  In David Allan's model, a nuclear blast anywhere, including the moon, will proceed in a columnar shape, rather than flying out in all directions as is seen in other types of non-high-energy explosions.  The column is a function of the interaction of the high-energy nuclear particles and photons in the explosion and the diallel gravitational field lines that emanate radially from the center of a mass, such as the earth.

The nuclear blast is actually a classic illustration of the new theory, showing the interaction of the nuclear particles and photons with the gravitational field lines.

In the case of a nuclear blast on the moon, though there would be the initial explosion of dust particles in all directions, there would be no mushroom cloud formation due to the lack of an atmosphere.  In theory, the main nuclear blast with its high-energy particles and photons would continue out in a column.  If the blast was facing the earth, then it would result in tremendous bombardment with high-energy particles that would only partially be mitigated by the earth's atmosphere.

According to the new theory, one very significant thing that is not currently recognized about nuclear blasts is that high-energy particles are emitted in both directions -- up and down.  An extrapolation of the new model is that the cumulative effect from nuclear tests in the past and present has caused core heating at the center of the earth to such an extent that it is the primary cause of global warming.
