Flashback Friday, November 7, 1946: Admiral and Mrs. Blandy (with Adm. Frank J. Lowry) celebrate the dissolution of the Crossroads task force by cutting into an atom bomb cake. Any similarity between the cake and Mrs. Blandy's hat is believed to have been coincidental.

In December 2014, the US Navy made a great show of their test of a laser weapon in what it called the “realistic threat environment” of the Persian Gulf. Video from the test, made available to the press, showed the USS Ponce firing the Laser Weapon System to burn some holes through the sides of some speedboats, causing the boats’ contents to explode. Other tests apparently shot some drone replicas out of the sky.

As the world observes Earth Day for the 45th consecutive year this week, the Bulletin keeps on providing the facts and analysis to inform decisions on climate change. Your support makes that possible.
Please give generously--and we'll send you a "3 minutes to midnight" lapel pin as a constant reminder of the need to be vigilant and well-informed.

Story
Tagline
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists informs the public about risks from nuclear weapons, nuclear energy, climate change, and biotechnology.
Introduction

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists was established in 1945 by scientists, engineers, and other experts who had created the atomic bomb as part of the Manhattan Project. They knew about the horrible effects of these new weapons and devoted themselves to warning the public about the consequences of using them. Those early scientists also worried about military secrecy, fearing that leaders might draw their countries into increasingly dangerous nuclear confrontations without the full consent of their citizens.
