During the second world war, the Anglo-American allies collaborated to produce two types of nuclear weapons: one using highly enriched uranium detonated above Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and another using separated plutonium detonated above Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. Immediately after the Japanese surrender, the U.S. Government (USG) restricted all nuclear weapons technology to U.S. citizens, leaving the British and Canadians to their own devices. While the British, French, and Russians developed their own nuclear weapons technologies, the U.S. developed the “hydrogen” bomb with a destructive power thousands of times stronger than the bombs dropped on Japan, measured in millions of tons of the chemical explosive TNT. To deliver these weapons the USG developed a triad: nuclear reactor powered submarines with nuclear tipped missiles, jet-propelled bomber aircraft, and intercontinental ballistic missiles. To justify the creation of these technologies, the USG developed two more projects: the Power Reactor Demonstration Program to determine the most easily commercializable nuclear reactors and “Atoms for Peace” to create export markets for U.S. nuclear power technologies in return for assurances that importers would not develop nuclear weapons. By 1968 U.S.  corporations, engaged in both nuclear weapons and nuclear power plant projects, had demonstrated two types of reactors: Pressurized Water Reactors, like those that powered submarines and aircraft carriers, and Boiling Water Reactors, like those at Fukushima. Under this commercial cover, an arsenal of thousands of nuclear bombs and hundreds of delivery vehicles were produced while the northern hemisphere was mesmerized by the “peaceful atom.” The creation of the nuclear weapons complexes in France, the U.K., and the U.S. set off the largest arms race in human history. Even today, while much of the publics attention is focused on nuclear power plants, the nuclear weapons sit ready to be used at a moments notice. However, even if the current fleet of nuclear power plants is retired, these weapons will continue to exist until the public focuses its political energy on retiring the underlying danger of maintaining weapons stockpiles that can destroy much of humanity in a matter of minutes. Let us focus on dismantling these weapons before they dismantle civilization.

We are waiting at orange.

Once I see all the words then I can think it through carefully.
If you stick around the south of France until the 15-20th or so, then we can meet on our way to the UK.

Still looking for a garage to store the TT for 10 months to a year – we are planning an around the world trip to celebrate the non reaction to nuclear reaction – of course you see the positive.
