So I've done a little research on EMP and I know how they disable electronics, but I don't quite understand the aftermath. If planet 'A' gets hit with a MASSIVE pulse, or several less massive pulses, would flora and fauna be directly affected? All the electronics present on 'A' would undoubtedly be broken, (would they explode?) but would the EMP make it impossible to rebuild the technology? I know that several TV shows (*cringes* sorry) talk about EMP shielding, is that a real concept or is it already in use? I'm not really physics smart so I apologize if any of these questions seem ridiculous to ask. Thank you for any help you can give me.
