  • Rendezvous In Space - A Look In on Military Space Power - Effects of Starfish Prime Nuclear Explosion on Space Policy, Comparison of Space Power to Air Power

    A 1962 nuclear explosion in space contributed significantly to the creation and implementation of the Outer Space Treaty in 1967, which outlawed weapons of mass destruction in space. As technology evolved afterwards, this treaty influenced development of space-based military capabilities and the organization of military space forces in the United States. This created serious challenges for today in fully bringing strategic space power to bear on national security issues as land, air, and sea forces become increasingly dependent upon these capab...

  • The Effects on the Atmosphere of a Major Nuclear Exchange

    Most of the earth's population would survive the immediate horrors of a nuclear holocaust, but what long-term climatological changes would affect their ability to secure food and shelter? This sobering book considers the effects of fine dust from ground-level detonations, of smoke from widespread fires, and of chemicals released into the atmosphere. The authors use mathematical models of atmospheric processes and data from natural situations--e.g., volcanic eruptions and arctic haze--to draw their conclusions. This is the most detailed and comp...

  • The Effect of Science on the Second World War

    The latest advances in science were fully exploited in the Second World War. They included radar, sonar, improved radio, methods of reducing disease, primitive computers, the new science of operational research and, finally, the atomic bomb, necessarily developed like all wartime technology in a remarkably short time. Such progress would have been impossible without the cooperation of Allied scientists with the military. The Axis powers' failure to recognise this was a major factor in their defeat....
