Rogue states and terror groups could launch nuclear attacks in space to cripple Britain’s electronic networks and jeopardise national security, a report warns today.
Weapons detonated up to 500 miles above the Earth would generate a massive electromagnetic pulse, knocking out satellites, radar and the National Grid with ‘devastating’ results.
Key military installations, transport systems, power and water supplies would be hit, wreaking havoc, claims the Commons Defence Select Committee.
Similarly, severe weather in space caused by explosions on the Sun’s surface could create electrical currents which would destroy crucial power networks.
Both scenarios would pose a ‘significant risk’ to national security, warns the alarming report.
