    And with the water ones, what the hell happens to the countless billions of animals in the blast radius & shock wave zone??

    You could hold in your hands the amount of material that creates these explosions. Amazing how well science and the scientific method works. Stainslaw Ulam was a genius. Now, lets support science and accept the scientific communities conclusion that global warming is real, as a direct consequence of human activity and not in the minds of politicians.

    If not for the extensive testing that was done, the full cataclysmic power of the Atomic bomb would never have been known (just dropping a couple on Japan would have been woefully insufficient data). It may sadden you to see multiple test explosions, but it should make you happy that they were done. The alternative would have been a lack of the Cold War. None of the 13-17 crowd ever would have had the chance to post.

    yeah sure testing is always good, but that was an awful lot of bombs. you say what you said but perhaps never dropping any would have been even better. When they first set one off they weren`t even sure what it would do damage wise, there was always the possibility that it wouldn`t have stopped and in essence would have created a sun on earth destroying the planet.

    When they thought that might have happened i`m sure they wouldn`t have thought setting them off every other week to collect data would have actually been the smartest move.

    However im not saying nuclear power is bad or anything like that, and i know we have actually learned of quite a few things from atomic tests, such as completely new elements and godzilla for instance. I just think we do know the extent of damage all those blasts did to the planet, on the same note we don`t actually know if they even did any damage.

    Definately the scariest but most beautiful site you could possibly witness. Theres something about nukes im scared of them but at the same time id pay thousands to attend a test demonstration to see it in person.

    The alternative to that is to see it in person for other reasons and id just rather not. . . .

    My father was a Shock Physicist for SRI and his job was to study the explosions off of nuclear blasts, and equivalent blasts. More modern test didn`t use actual nuclear bombs but extremely powerful explosives in quantities that equal what one nuclear bomb would be.

    They would than have these massive tunnels set up that were lined with plastic and injected into pockets of the plastic different gases. As the shock wave entered the tunnels the different gases would effect it in different ways. Slowing it down, speeding it up, or even attempting to change its direction.

    Another neat little fact is that the bombs are a lot more effective/destructive when detonated off the ground around 100 feet or so than right on the ground.

    He still has a lot of cool photos and test material from his work at his house. Its pretty neat to go through it every now and again.

    Children,

    Forget about testing, let`s not forget that the only country to have ever actually USED a WMD in the whole of world history was the good ol` US of A. I`m talking about Hiroshima & Nagasaki for those who are a bit slow.

    If America wanted to end WW2 quickly by showing their nuclear power, couldn`t you guys have just set one off in the middle of the ocean? This would have sent the message to Tokyo, but without the 200,000 dead civilians. Like all the nuclear scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project (one of whom was Einstein himself) begged you to do?

    Just a thought.

    Ok, davymid, I don`t condone Hiroshima/Nagasaki any more than you do, and I`m American.

    Why do you blame those of us a generation or two down the road for this? If its the "sins of our fathers" crap, then yes, we have to deal with the effects, but don`t you dare blame us...

    I`m not worried about WWII all that much anymore. I don`t even worry too much about Korea or Vietnam. I`m too busy worrying about Iraq and what I can do to stop the police state I see in my near future.

    ^^ Sunnysongbird,

    I`m not blaming you guys or "daring" (please forgive me!) to blame present-day American children for the "sins of their fathers". Neither do I judge every German kid I meet on the standards of Adolf Hitler.

    But as for the Iraq situation which you brought up, you guys brought this on yourselves. America voted for Bush (TWICE!) and so the populace has to be held accountable. Isn`t that what Democracy is all about? You might not worry about Vietnam, good for you, personally I worry about it all the time, as in `history repeating itself`.

    I can`t point the finger at President Truman cause he`s dead. But I can point at Bush and ask "How did this f*ckwit become the most powerful man in the world? And what drove an austere nation to vote hime as their leader?".

    Answer? Americans.

    I not going to make this post into a history lesson but, allied intelligence was convinced the then Japanese would fight to the death rather then surrender. Given the limited supply of nuclear ready bombs if the great bluff that Japan would be completely obliterated if they would not surrender.

    Knowing the effects and consequences known about the use of atmospheric detonation, no nation could be excused for using a nuclear weapon as an offensive strike.

    davymid.. I`m tired of people like you. George W. Bush was elected in 2000, and a year later our nation was attacked by terrorists and no one felt safe.

    So of course when he decided to go into Iraq because of the `WMDs`, we were all for it. Hell, we were told that there were WMDs there. And then in 2004, yeah, we elected him again. What kind of sense would it make to elect a brand new president just as we invaded Iraq? None.

    So say what you want. I don`t like our president at all. But for you to say that we`re stupid for voting for him twice, you really don`t know what you`re talking about. And I don`t expect you to, you live in Europe.

    We don`t like him. Polls show that like 11% of the population approve of the job that he`s doing. And he won`t be our president in 2008, and hopefully our new one will straighten things out. But Christ, do not tell us that it`s our fault that we`re in Iraq right now. We were in a state of terror, after the worst attack on American soil had happen

    And as for dropping the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki..

    I agree with what we did. Had we invaded by ground, not only would a very large number of American Soldiers have died, but depending on how long they held up, as many or more Japanese could have died in the end.

    For Japenese, surrender was the most shameful thing that you could do. That`s why they would commit `hari kari` on themselves (kill themselves) rather than be captured. So don`t think if we would have dropped a bomb in the water that they would have just given up. That`s just ignorant.

    So yeah, we killed a lot of people that probably didn`t deserve to die. But we ended a war that could have easily dragged on for years more and cost far more total lives had we not done it.

    Depending on where in Europe you are, we either helped you win the war or defeated you. In the first case, you shouldn`t talk about the bombs. We helped you win the war and you just sat back. In the latter case, I`m sure you`re just bitter.

    I have to say Dropping the bombs was really needed. I personally would not be alive today if the bomb wasn`t dropped for my great grandfather on my mother`s side was arrested by the Japanese by hoarding gas and was set for execution but then the bomb dropped and they eventually let him go.

    Iraq on the other hand is just a huge mess.

    "But as for the Iraq situation which you brought up, you guys brought this on yourselves. America voted for Bush (TWICE!) and so the populace has to be held accountable. "

    What cracks me up is how some europeans assume that, since bush won the election, that ALL americans side with bush and are warmongering morons like him. I understand you probably dont intend that, but that`s the impression you`re giving off here.

    As far as I can tell, no country is any more vindicated than the next. Every country has it`s marks in the black book. We as a human collective are evil creatures. To place particular blame on one country for an atrocity while ignorning others is ridiculous. "America is evil." "Iraq is evil." "France is evil." No, HUMANITY is evil. It just so happens that America dominates in one of the more flashy forms of it.
