Korea gears up for a test of its nuclear weapons. The proliferation of nuclear arms in the hands of North Korea's secretive, unpredictable regime
pushes the world toward nuclear catastrophe. Inevitable? Or
- US conducts 21st Sub Critical
Nuclear Test in Nevada Desert. The test was conducted 963 feet below
ground, detonating high explosives around plutonium encased in a steel
sphere while x-rays, radar and lasers charted the behavior of the
plutonium. Read about the Comprehensive
Test Ban Treaty. The bomb testers claim that sub-critical tests do
not violate the terms of the CTBT. Is that completely true?

2002 - The U.S. is planning a
new nuclear bomb production plant in Nevada, which would make plutonium
pits, a replacement part for aging weapons stockpiled by the United
States. No plutonium pits have been made since 1989, after the Rocky
Flats facility, near Denver was shut down. Denver just barely
escaped major contamination during a fire at Rocky Flats facility at the
height of the Cold War. Details

2002 - The U.S. subcritical
nuclear test, Mario, its 18th, occurred on August 30, 2002, at an
underground test site in Nevada. The test was the fifth since
President George W Bush took office. These tests are defiant acts
against the spirit of Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).
The first US first subcritical nuclear test occurred in July 1997.
Subcritical nuclear experiments differ from traditional nuclear weapons
tests in that they do not reach criticality or sustain a nuclear chain
reaction. Plutonium is used in these tests.

2002 - The date of a US
subcritical nuclear test, ninth of the Oboe series, a subcritical
test. What kind of test is that? Subcritical nuclear experiments differ
from traditional nuclear weapons tests in that they do not reach
criticality or sustain a nuclear chain reaction. This
test is the 17th of its kind and the fourth under the administration
of US President George W. Bush. The bomb will be detonated 980 ft below
the surface and it will be above an underground aquifer. How much
