How bout the crazy things they were doing at Oak Ridge?
trying to find suitable shielding for nuclear Planes.
Look up Tower Shielding Facility.

These people lifted the reactor out of the ground using four tall towers, while the reactor was suspended in air they turned the thing on. and placed numerous configurations of various metals and substances for shielding.

Fun stuff those whacky guys in the early days.
Sounds like they needed 10CFR26 back then.

This is not a site about nuclear history - nor is it about radiating food.


haha... i love this quote from this link.

"It is unethical to expose anyone to nuclear radiations without their consent."

maybe i just have a warped sense of humor...
or maybe i'm just bored out of my goard.

in anycase, i'm a noob here and I need more posts under my belt.

Rain Man,

Good idea on the Nuclear History thing.  This stuff needs to be captured before all of us old guys decay off.

Interesting read Wolfen.  Thanx.  A first strike with nuclear weapons has never been official US policy (although military doctrine dictates preparing for that possibility).  Things can change when the heat is on or if you are backed into a corner.  That is why we have organizations like the RAND Corp. to "think about the unthinkable".  See:


www.rand.org


Please note that much of the work performed by this organization is classified and not available to the general public.  They also produced the Pentagon Papers much to the embarassment of the Pentagon and the Nixon administration.

Check link below for a comprehensive list of nuclear weapons tests.  Nation, GPS coordinates, yield, type...this has some great info.  It's a sh*t load of SNM that went K eff > 1.  The madness of those times.

The above listed link has been killed.  See the following link for the same information.  Not as detailed but still good.
