Scientists explain the benefits of nuclear tests for science

(ORDO NEWS) — On January 27, 1951, a hundred kilometers from Los Angeles, the first nuclear warhead was tested, which in an instant illuminated the Nhava Desert brighter than the dining sun. As a result, the sky was covered with a cloud of radioactive waste, and radiation is still found in the teeth of babies.

Both the American and the Soviet soldiers did not fully understand what they were dealing with.

They could stand several kilometers from the point of the explosion and then observe their bones, which were translucent from the incredible intensity of the radiation. A third of the soldiers remained disabled, they had children with developmental disabilities.

However, despite all the disadvantages, it was nuclear tests that gave the world nuclear power.

In the process of creating the bomb, as noted by Professor Sarah Heath of the University of Manchester, scientists have learned to control the uncontrollable. It was through the work on weapons of mass destruction that new areas of knowledge and industries were opened.

In addition, the need for computing technology to test warheads forced the best engineers to work on creating powerful computers. Calculations with the help of technology have saved time and effort at all times. Today there are supercomputers whose potential has yet to be harnessed.
