Today, Monday 25th of May 2009, North Korea explodes a second underground atombomb, officials says.
See Los Angeles Times.
The website of the U.S. Geological Survey reports a seismic event of 4.7 magnitude in North Korea at 0:54 UTC. “Comparisons of the seismograms of both atom tests shows similar features, suggesting that the two events are in close spatial proximity and are the same type of source, although the more recent event is larger.”
See USGS: Magnitude 4.7 – North Korea.
The event can but not need to be the predicted event of public media interest I wrote two articles about (see below). Although it could explain the fact why it occurs in May but have first consequences in autumn end of the year.
Edit (2009-07-04): The original task at hand was: ‘Describe the event which triggers a strong decline of the DAX value (german stock indice) in 2009‘. The result was an object and a connected event of ‘public media interest‘. I drew a timeline and marked two points – in spring and autumn. The event seemed to occur in spring and the impact of it on the DAX would be in autumn. The session were done blind. Thats why I wrote ‘The event can but not need to be the predicted event‘, because the event itself had no significant impact on the DAX (yet). Well at least as predicted in the session.
