These documents chronicle the events of the Cuban Missile Crisis. On October 15, 1962, the Soviet Union was discovered attempting to install nuclear missiles in Cuba. These missiles would have been capable of quickly reaching the United States. President Kennedy responded with a naval blockade. After several days of increasing tensions, the Soviet Union finally agreed to remove the missiles.
These documents chronicle the United States? effort in developing the hydrogen bomb and the effects of the Soviet Union's atomic-bomb development. Documents include: ?General Advisory Committee's Majority and Minority Reports on Building the H-Bomb? and ?Comments on The History of the H-Bomb? by Hans A. Bethe.
A militarily plausible nuclear attack, even "limited," could be expected to kill people and to inflict economic damage on a scale unprecedented in American experience; a large-scale nuclear exchange would be a calamity unprecedented in human history. This collection of documents includes: "The Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki" by The Manhattan Engineer District (1946), "The Effects of Nuclear War, Worldwide Effects of Nuclear War" by U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, and "The Effects of Nuclear Weapons" by Samuel Glasstone and Philip J. Dolan.

Speech (excerpts), ?Foreword Written for a Report on the Strategic Defense Initiative,? and President Bush's ?Address to the American People about Ballistic Missile Defense.?
At the height of McCarthyism, Oppenheimer's politics during the 1930s came under scrutiny and ultimately led to his undoing at the hands of the Atomic Energy Commission in 1953. He asked for a security hearing to review the charges, which went on for four weeks and heard testimony from 40 witnesses including Oppenheimer. Documents include: ?Testimony in the Matter of J. Robert Oppenheimer - Gen. Leslie Groves, Hans Bethe, George F. Kerman, I. I. Rabi, Edward Teller,? and ?Decision and Opinions of the United States Atomic Energy Commission in the Matter of Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer.?
Weddell seals have a large repertoire of very strange vocalizations–everything from chugs, chirps, trills, and whistles to what sounds like something from outer space. Weddells make these sounds both underwater and on top of the sea ice. Our soundtrack composer Steve Perez used hydrophone recordings the project obtained under NMFS Permit 1032-1917 to interweave with guitar and midi to create an other-worldly composition consisting of some of those Weddell seal vocalizations recorded by the Weddell Population Ecology project. Video field footage obtained by project members Eric Boyd and Terrill Paterson under NMFS Permit 17236. Video editing and production by Mary Lynn Price. Learn more at WeddellSealScience.com!

Categories include: The Nuclear Age Begins, The Manhattan Project, The Trinity Test, The Bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, Developing the Hydrogen Bomb, The Oppenheimer Affair, Cuban Missile Crisis, Arms Control, Deterrence and Nuclear Proliferation, and Missile Defense.
These documents chronicle the establishment of a secret program?which came to be known as the Manhattan Project?to develop an atomic bomb, a powerful explosive nuclear weapon. Principal documents include: ?The Quebec Agreement,? The Roosevelt-Churchill "Tube Alloys" Deal, Interim Committee's Report, ?Report of the Committee on Political and Social Problems (The Franck Report), and ?Atomic Energy for Military Purposes (The Smyth Report).?
These early documents chronicle the beginnings of the atomic age: Meitner and Frisch's ?Nature Article: Disintegration of Uranium by Neutrons,? Einstein's Letter to President Roosevelt, President Roosevelt's response to Dr. Einstein, Frisch-Peierls Memorandum, and ?The MAUD Report.?
This photograph collection shows a wood-frame house located 1,100 meters from ground zero, exposed to a nuclear blast at the Nevada Test Site. The test was Upshot-Knothole Annie, a 16 Kt tower shot, on March 17, 1953. Exposure to thermal radiation was 25 cal/cm2, about one-quarter of that experienced at ground zero in Hiroshima. The blast over pressure was 5 psi, and the blast wave created surface winds of 160 mph.
This collection shows photographs shows the construction of CP-1, or Chicago Pile Number One, that was done under the football stadium in an abandoned squash court at the University of Chicago. The pile contained 771,000 lbs. of graphite, 80,590 lbs. of uranium oxide and 12,400 lbs. of uranium metal when it went ?critical.? It cost about $1 million to produce and build. The pile took the form of a flattened ellipsoid, which measured 25 ft. wide and 20 ft. high.
A collection of photographs of the Little Boy and Fat Man atomic bombs features some images of the actual bombs that were detonated over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, as well as photographs of replicas displayed in museums.
This collection of photographs depicts the 509th Composite Bomb Group on Tinian Island in the Pacific, the crews of the Enola Gay and Bock's Car, and actual atomic bombs that were used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
This section contains images of the first atomic test and aftermath. On July 16, 1945, at 5:29:45 AM, a light "brighter than a thousand suns" filled the valley. As the now-familiar mushroom cloud rose into the sky, Oppenheimer quoted from Hindu scripture, the ?Bhagavad-gita,? ?Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.? The world had entered the nuclear age. The ?Gadget? had a yield equivalent to 19 kilotons of TNT. ?Fat Man,? the bomb dropped on Nagasaki, was identical in design to the ?Gadget.?
This collection of documents covers the preparations, observations, and post-test summaries of the first test, known as the Trinity Test, of an atomic device (the Gadget).

Ecologists are investigating whether Weddell seal pups that spend more time in the water learning to swim with their moms have a higher chance of surviving to return and have pups of their own. Weddell seals live all their lives in Antarctica, and are the southernmost mammal in the world. Weddell moms spend a lot of time with their pups coaxing them into the cold Antarctic water and helping them learn to swim. Footage includes interviews with Montana State University ecology professors Bob Garrott and Jay Rotella. Video production by Mary Lynn Price. Additional footage by Jessica Farrer, Jesse DeVoe, Henry Kaiser, Rob Robbins, and Steve Rupp. More information at http://WeddellSealScience.com.
The resilient Weddell seals of Erebus Bay in Antarctica's Ross Sea, and how they responded to a massive iceberg event that blocked access to some of their pupping areas in the past decade. These seals are the southernmost mammal on Earth, and are the subject of one of the longest running population studies ever of a long-lived mammal.
Video includes interviews filmed in Antarctica with Montana State University ecologists Jay Rotella, Bob Garrott, and Thierry Chambert. Footage and images contributed by Mary Lynn Price, Henry Kaiser, Jay Rotella, Bob Garrott, Don Siniff, Gillian Hadley, Rob Robbins, Steve Rupp, Jesse DeVoe, Glenn Stauffer, Jessica Farrer, Jen Mannas, and Thierry Chambert. Video editing by Mary Lynn Price. Opening music composed by Darren Roberts, piano by Rachel Carlson.
