Chinese physicists simulate nuclear blast against satellites

  • Computer experiment suggests warhead detonated in near space could disable threats such as Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites
  • Explosion could produce a cloud that sets a trap for enemies while reducing risk to ‘friendly’ spacecraft, according to model
