Asteroid explodes near US base and it’s lucky nuclear war didn’t erupt | Metro News

An asteroid has exploded in a ‘fireball’ near an American early warning radar base, prompting a top scientist to reflect on how a similar ‘freak’ incident could cause nuclear war.

The meteor was only detected after it detonated close to Thule Airbase, Greenland, on July 25.

A prominent nuclear expert later discussed how the US military could have mistaken the explosion for a Russian ‘first strike’ and launched up to 2,000 nukes in retaliation.

  1. I don’t think it was a meteor …. and I don’t think Hawaii incoming ICBM warning was a “mistake” broadcast ….
