Alex, better late than dead

What is lacking in this world, is MORALITY .. what is GOOD and what is EVIL

Religions supposedly should be "beacon of Morality" .. but, POWER has corrupted Religion

We drifting "rudderless"

What is now needed is WISDOM

United States narrowly averted a nuclear disaster in 1961 when an atomic bomb nearly detonated after falling out of a B-52 bomber that broke up in the sky.


According to the Washington Post, the incident took place on January 21, 1961 – less than 20 years after nuclear bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki – and is explained further in a recently declassified report published by the National Security Archives.

When the US Air Force aircraft went into a tailspin and broke up, the two bombs fell towards Goldsboro, North Carolina. The parachute for one of the weapons failed to deploy, and the plane crash had actually pushed the bomb into “armed” mode by the time it hit the ground. Luckily for North Carolina, the plane’s destruction also damaged the switch necessary to trigger detonation

“The report implied that because Weapon 2 landed in a free-fall, without the parachute operating, the timer did not initiate the bomb’s high voltage battery (“trajectory arming”), a step in the arming sequence,” wrote Bill Burr of the National Security Archives.

“For Weapon 2, the Arm/Safe switch was in the “safe” position, yet it was virtually armed because the impact shock had rotated the indicator drum to the “armed” position. But the shock also damaged the switch contacts, which had to be intact for the weapon to detonate.”

Burr noted in his report just how fine the line was and is between safety and destruction.

“Perhaps this is what Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara had in mind, a few years later, when he observed that, ‘by the slightest margin of chance, literally the failure of two wires to cross, a nuclear explosion was averted,” he wrote.


It is a miracle of highest order that last 60 yrs no nuclear bomb went off by accident .. this beyond reasonable statistics

Any such accident would kill millions as those bombs are stockpiled in populated arias

In private, according to American negotiators, the Iranians have long disputed estimates that it would take only two months or so to produce enough weapons-grade uranium, and perhaps another year, plus or minus a number of months, to fashion it into a weapon.

..

“It’s a huge gap,” one senior official involved in the talks said on Thursday, “that reflects the American insistence that we can’t live with the status quo and the Iranian insistence that they want to be able to produce all their own civilian nuclear fuel,” even for reactors Tehran is years away from building. American officials declined to be quoted by name discussing the report.

..

“The Iranian strategy to reach a nuclear bomb is to do it not as fast as possible,” said Amos Yadlin, the former chief of Israeli military intelligence in Israel. Iran, he said, wants to do it “as safely as possible,” meaning in a way that would not provoke a military response. Mr. Yadlin is now the executive director of Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies.

The Iranians argue that Mr. Kerry is alarmist and that it will take far longer — at least 18 months, maybe 42. But the Iranian report understates the number of centrifuges Iran has in place: It notes that the country has “some 9,000,” citing reports by international inspectors. That is the number currently running, the inspection reports say, but another 10,000 have been installed.

To Americans, “breakout time” refers to the number of months Iran would need to produce enough fuel for a single weapon. Most of the Iranian report deals with the whole process of producing fuel and then making it into a weapon.

American officials note that many of those processes could happen simultaneously, reducing the amount of time needed.
