North Korea Stops Nuclear Missile Test After Site Collapsed

North Korea has said it will stop testing nuclear missiles. The latest move has surprised experts, but many believed this was done in preparation of the meeting between North Korea and the White House.

A recent study by group of geologists have shown that the sudden compromise by Kim Jong-Un might just be because the nuclear test site have collasped due to many explosions, and there are concerns about the collapse, as radioactive materials could make its way to China soon.


Geologists in China said that the mount Muntap collaspses might be because the country tested a nuclear warhead last fall. The detonation was done at around 2,300 feet beneath the mountain peak, causing aftershock earthquakes.

The bomb is reported to have vaporized the surrounding rock, and blew a hole in the side of the mountain.

According to the United States Geological Survey, when the bomb was detonated, there was a 6.3 earthquake,followed by another 4.6 magnitude earthquake.

The collapse of the test site could be a reason for the halting of nuclear missile test by North Korea, whether the regime will build a new one is unknown.
