The nearest we have ever come to the top of the world
"DEFCON-2 is the simplest unmarried quantity at the Cuban Missile predicament released and is a vital contribution to the historical past of the chilly battle. past the army and political evidence of the difficulty, Polmar and Gresham cartoon the personalities that created and coped with the obstacle. in addition they convey us how shut we got here to the sting with out changing into sensationalistic."—Larry Bond, bestselling writer of risky Ground
Spy-satellite and aerial-reconnaissance photographs demonstrate that one of many United States's bitterest enemies should be buying guns of mass destruction and the capability to exploit them opposed to the yankee fatherland. management officers refuse to just accept intelligence execs' interpretation of those photographs and order an finish to undercover agent missions over the offending kingdom. greater than a month later, after vicious infighting, the president orders the undercover agent missions to renew. the recent photographs exhibit an array of ballistic missiles, able to sporting nuclear warheads and outstanding deep inside U.S. territory. it seems that the missiles may be totally operational inside one week.
This isn't really a plot setup for a suspense novel; it's the precise tale of the main terrifying second within the 45-year chilly conflict among the USA and the Soviet Union: the Cuban Missile obstacle. DEFCON-2 tells this story because it hasn't ever been advised before—from each side, with the aid of hundreds and hundreds of lately declassified U.S. and Soviet files, in addition to interviews with a variety of former spies, army figures, and govt officers who communicate out the following for the 1st time.

The importance nine nice East Japan Earthquake on March eleven, 2011, by way of a big tsunami struck TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear strength Station and caused an extraordinary middle melt/severe coincidence in devices 1 – three. The radioactivity unlock ended in the evacuation of neighborhood citizens, a lot of whom nonetheless haven't been capable of go back to their homes.
As a gaggle of nuclear specialists, the Atomic strength Society of Japan verified the research Committee at the Nuclear coincidence on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear energy Station, to enquire and research the coincidence from clinical and technical views for clarifying the underlying and primary motives, and to make innovations. the result of the research by way of the AESJ research Committee has been compiled herewith because the ultimate Report.
Direct contributing components of the catastrophic nuclear incident at Fukushima Daiichi NPP initiated through an exceptional titanic earthquake/ tsunami – inadequacies in tsunami measures, critical coincidence administration, emergency reaction, twist of fate restoration and mitigations – and the underlying elements - organizational matters, etc., were clarified and suggestions within the following parts were made.
- Nuclear defense fundamentals
- Direct components of the accident
- Organizational aspects
- universal goods (R&D, foreign cooperation, human assets management)
- Post-accident management/recovery from the accident.
