The day we almost lost North Carolina: Two nuclear bombs—both owned by the U.S.—almost exploded in Goldsboro, North Carolina in 1961. Fortunately for the state of North Carolina, the bombs, which were said to be 260 times more powerful than the one that took out Hiroshima in 1945, didn’t explode. However … one of those bombs went through the motions it should have if it were to blow up. That’s just one of the findings that “Fast Food Nation” author Eric Schlosser found when researching his new book, “Command and Control.”

On August 5, 1963, the Limited Test Ban Treaty was signed by the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union. After Senate approval, it was signed by President Kennedy on October 7, 1963. The treaty went into effect on October 10, 1963, and banned nuclear weapons testing in the atmosphere, in outer space, and under water.

How Nuclear Bombs Could Save Earth from Killer Asteroids

The most destructive weapon humanity has ever developed could help our species avoid going the way of the dinosaurs.
Pretty much any asteroid that poses a threat to Earth can be blasted out of the heavens using a nuclear bomb, even with warning times of a week or less, say a team of scientists who have been developing the idea.
"We have the solution, using our baseline concept, to be able to mitigate the asteroid-impact threat, with any range of warning," Bong Wie, of Iowa State University, said Feb. 6 at the 2014 NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) meeting at Stanford University.
