• Who are nuclear weapons scientists? | Hugh Gusterson | TEDxFoggyBottom

    Most people study nuclear warfare by studying the new developments in the weapons themselves. Hugh Gusterson takes a different approach. Instead of studying the weapons, he studies the nuclear scientists who created them. He took to the TEDxFoggyBottom stage to share what he learned. Dr. Gusterson’s research focuses on the interdisciplinary study of the conditions under which particular bodies of knowledge are formed and deployed, with special attention to the science of war, the military, and nuclear weapons. His research addresses the problem of how to understand knowledge as a cultural formation, and how to analyze the historical and structural transformations of science and technology. He asks questions such as: How do cultures of science initiate and shape participants? How can w...

No longer will you have to visit multiple websites for reading information on them. This one lesson sums it all up. Follow the course daily to find lectures on various important historical events. The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT, is an international treaty whose objective is to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament. Opened for signature in 1968, the treaty entered into force in 1970. As required by the text, after twenty-five years, NPT Parties met in May 1995 and agreed to extend the treaty indefinitely. More countries have adhered to the NPT than any other arms limitation and disarmament agreement, a testament to the treaty's significance. As of August 2016, 191 states have adhered to the treaty, though North Korea, which acceded in 1985 but never came into compliance, announced its withdrawal from the NPT in 2003, following detonation of nuclear devices in violation of core obligations. Four UN member states have never accepted the NPT, three of which are thought to possess nuclear weapons: India, Israel, and Pakistan. In addition, South Sudan, founded in 2011, has not joined. The treaty effectively recognizes five states as nuclear-weapon states: the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, and China (these are also the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council). Four other states are known or believed to possess nuclear weapons: India, Pakistan, and North Korea have openly tested and declared that they possess nuclear weapons, while Israel is deliberately ambiguous regarding its nuclear weapons status. The NPT is often seen to be based on a central bargain: the NPT non-nuclear-weapon states agree never to acquire nuclear weapons and the NPT nuclear-weapon states in exchange agree to share the benefits of peaceful nuclear technology and to pursue nuclear disarmament aimed at the ultimate elimination of their nuclear arsenals. The treaty is reviewed every five years in meetings called Review Conferences of the Parties to the Treaty of Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Even though the treaty was originally conceived with a limited duration of 25 years, the signing parties decided, by consensus, to unconditionally extend the treaty indefinitely during the Review Conference in New York City on 11 May 1995, culminating successful U.S. government efforts led by Ambassador Thomas Graham Jr. At the time the NPT was proposed, there were predictions of 25–30 nuclear weapon states within 20 years. Instead, over forty years later, five states are not parties to the NPT, and they include the only four additional states believed to possess nuclear weapons. Several additional measures have been adopted to strengthen the NPT and the broader nuclear nonproliferation regime and make it difficult for states to acquire the capability to produce nuclear weapons, including the export controls of the Nuclear Suppliers Group and the enhanced verification measures of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Additional Protocol. Critics argue that the NPT cannot stop the proliferation of nuclear weapons or the motivation to acquire them. They express disappointment with the limited progress on nuclear disarmament, where the five authorized nuclear weapons states still have 22,000 warheads in their combined stockpile and have shown a reluctance to disarm further.[dubious – discuss] Several high-ranking officials within the United Nations have said that they can do little to stop states using nuclear reactors to produce nuclear weapons.

In a politically explosive paper on German foreign policy he writes that Germany is on a collision course with a fundamental rethink. A changes is in the world that could force Germany to even acquire nuclear weapons if the American security umbrella does indeed close.

India has enough Plutonium to make 356 to 492 Nukes -- Pakistan A new and comprehensive assessment of the Indian nuclear weapon-making capacity has been given in a book titled ‘Indian unsafeguarded nuclear programme’, published by the Institute of Strategic Studies, Islamabad (ISSI). The authors say the study contains evidence that India has the largest and oldest unsafeguarded nuclear programme in the developing world and among the states not party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). They said that member states of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) should consider the large and swiftly expanding Indian nuclear bomb capacity when dealing with India’s NSG membership and ensure that Indian membership of this export control arrangement does not, in any way, help India expand and accelerate its nuclear weapons program. This study unveils the size and capabilities of the four aspects of Indian nuclear program, which are uranium reservoirs, uranium enrichment, nuclear reactors and reprocessing. India has produced nuclear fuel beyond the current requirements of its Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors, and its uranium enrichment program is the fastest growing in the world and provides New Delhi with ample uranium enrichment capacity. The capacity is enough not only to run its large future fleet of nuclear powered ballistic missile submarines but also to build nuclear and thermo-nuclear weapons. In a chapter on unsafe-guarded nuclear reactors in India, a new assessment is made as to how many nuclear bombs India can actually make, based on the removal of weapon-grade and reactor-grade plutonium from its nuclear reactors, kept outside IAEA safeguards. It concluded that unsafe-guarded nuclear reactor capacity of India can allow it to develop up to 356 to 492 plutonium-based nuclear weapons. In addition, India is keeping its Fast Breeder reactor program outside the IAEA safeguard for potential military use. An alarming increase has been witnessed in the acquisition of arms and ammunition on the part of India; and it is likely to spend around $250 bn on acquisition of weapons in next few years. The appetite is regional-specific, with Pakistan being the prime target. India has developed considerable nuclear weaponry and delivery systems, and its Armed Forces have been equipped with nuclear weapons. India’s eagerness for entry into Nuclear Suppliers’ Group and other regimes is aimed at enhancing defence-related capacities rather than meeting its energy requirements. India and the US had signed a deal in 2008 that gave India access to civilian nuclear technology, despite the fact India had dubious past in this regard. Thus, international covenants and laws were trampled, and hypocrisy, strategic interest and greed of the US and the West for approximately hundred billion dollars were victorious. In August 2016, India’s first indigenously-constructed nuclear submarine INS Arihant was quietly commissioned into service in August and it has been operational since then, according to recent reports. It was launched in 2009 by then prime minister Manmohan Singh and has undergone a series of vigorous tests since then. Some sources told The Times of India that the vessel is “not yet fully ready” to be deployed for “deterrent patrols” with nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles in its four silos. It was formally commissioned by Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lamba and with its commission India has quietly completed its nuclear triad. Indian daily ‘The Hindu’ cited some defence sources as saying that to maintain secrecy the vessel is still not being called INS Arihant. INS stands for ‘Indian Naval Ship’ and is used as a prefix only after a ship has been inducted into the navy. Arihant is India’s first nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine and is propelled by an 83 MW pressurised light-water reactor at its core.

A new study, dramatic increases in infant mortality, cancer and leukemia in the Iraqi city of Fallujah exceed those reported by survivors of the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Fallujah was bombarded by US Marines in 2004. Iraqi doctors there have complained since 2005 of being overwhelmed by the number of babies with serious birth defects, ranging from a girl born with two heads to paralysis of the lower limbs. They say they are also seeing far more cancers than they did before the battle for Fallujah between US troops and insurgents.
