Ohio University – A Case Study in Nuclear Proliferation: The Iran Nuclear Deal and the Responsibility of Physicists

Ohio University

Abstract The first nuclear weapon was tested in Alamogordo, NM, in July 1945. In the following month, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed through the explosion of two nuclear warheads. These horrifying strikes directly led to the surrender of Japan almost 4 years after its attack on Pearl Harbor. An industrial scale effort with more than …

University of Michigan – Actionable Ideas for Nuclear Threat Reduction

University of Michigan

Abstract  This talk provides a brief overview of the resurgent role of nuclear weapons in national security strategies, the threat that it poses to the public, and potential risk mitigation approaches. Recent events, including U.S. withdrawal from arms control treaties and the pursuit of new nuclear weapons capabilities in the nine nuclear weapons states, suggest …

Baylor University – The Continuing Risk of nuclear War (and how physicists, acting as citizen-scientists, can help reduce it)

Baylor University

Abstract “With the end of the Cold War and the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the public, including most physicists, and Congress, assumed, the danger of a nuclear war had ended as well. Unfortunately, that has not been the case. Indeed, the danger of accidental nuclear war may be increasing. US and Russian strategic missiles …

Ohio State University – The Growing Danger of Nuclear Weapons (and how physicists can help reduce it)

Ohio State University

Abstract  While nuclear weapons might sound like Cold War relics, in truth the immense risks they pose to all humanity are still very much with us. In fact, trends indicate the risks may be growing with the abandonment of arms control agreements and the development of new types of strategic weapons. Physicists have historically constructively …

Purdue University – The Increasing Peril from Nuclear Arms (and how physicists can help reduce the threat)

Purdue University

Abstract With geopolitical and technological changes mostly driven by the nuclear weapons states, we are witnessing a new nuclear arms race and deterioration of the multi-decade arms control regime. This talk will describe the current critical situation, feasible steps to reduce the nuclear threat, and a new project sponsored by the American Physical Society to …

Central Michigan University – A Case Study in Nuclear Proliferation: The Iran Nuclear Deal and the Responsibility of Physicists

Central Michigan University Dow Science Building 102 Mt., Pleasant, MI

Abstract We'll review possible consequences of nuclear war and nuclear terrorism and explain the system of arms control treaties that have been put into place to contain this threat over the past 70 years. We will briefly review challenges different arms control agreements have been facing in the recent past. Some focus will be placed …
