Nuclear bomb dropped at Nagasaki

The term Nuke Hoax refers to all psience and media fakery surrounding nuclear weapons, nuclear plants and nuclear power in general. Among the first people who suggested that Nuclear weapons were a Hoax, is Jesse Waugh, who was interviewed by Ab in March 2018.[ab 1] Another recommended chat to listen to is between Ab, Folius Hattius and Patrick.[ab 2]

Timeline

  • 1898 - Pierre and Marie Curie discover Radium & radioactivity - fake images produced for schoolbooks[MSM 1]

Rosenberg Trial 1951 03/06 United States show trial Trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for espionage for the Soviet Union [ab 13] [CF 16]
[CF 17]
[MSM 29]
Operation Greenhouse 1951 04/07 Enewetak Atoll, Pacific test Operation Greenhouse showcased new and aggressive designs for nuclear weapons. The main idea was to reduce the size, weight, and most importantly, reduce the amount of fissile material necessary for nuclear weapons, while increasing the destructive power. [MSM 30]
EBR-I 1951 12/20 Arco, Idaho nuclear power First operational nuclear power plant in the world [MSM 31]
Ivy Mike 1952 11/01 Enewetak Atoll, Pacific test First test of a hydrogen bomb [ab 9] [CF 18] [2]
[MSM 32]
Joe 4 1953 08/12 Soviet Union test The RDS-6s was tested on August 12, 1953 (Joe 4). The measured yield was 400 kilotons. Despite the inability of the RDS-6s to be scaled into the megaton range, the detonation was still used by Soviet diplomats as leverage. The Soviets claimed that they too had a hydrogen bomb, but unlike the United States' first thermonuclear weapon, theirs was deployable by air. The United States didn't develop a deployable version of the hydrogen bomb until 1954. [CF 19] [MSM 33]
Castle Bravo 1954 03/01 Bikini Atoll, Pacific test First in a series of high-yield thermonuclear weapon design tests by the US at Bikini Atoll; Operation Castle. Device was the most powerful nuclear device detonated by the US and its first lithium-deuteride-fueled thermonuclear weapon. Castle Bravo's yield was 15 megatons of TNT, 2.5 times the predicted 6.0 megatons, due to unforeseen additional reactions involving 7Li. 23 crew members of Lucky Dragon 5 experienced fall-out and 1 died. [CF 20] [MSM 34]
[MSM 35]
Obninsk reactor 1954 06/26 Obninsk, Soviet Union nuclear power First grid-connected nuclear power plant in the world [MSM 36]
Operation Teapot 1955 02/18 Nevada test A series of 14 nuclear test explosions conducted at the Nevada Test Site in the first half of 1955. First test at 0.8 before 8 PM . [3]
[MSM 37]
RDS-37 1955 11/22 Soviet Union test RDS-37 was the Soviet Union's first two-stage hydrogen bomb. The weapon had a nominal yield of approximately 3 megatons. It was scaled down to 1.6 megatons for the live test. Despite this reduction in yield, much of its shock wave was focused back downward at the ground unexpectedly because the weapon exploded under an inversion layer, causing a trench to collapse on a group of soldiers, killing one. It also caused a building in Kurchatov, 65 km (40 mi) away, to collapse and kill a young girl. [CF 21] [MSM 38]
Mars Bluff incident 1958 03/11 Mars Bluff, South Carolina Incidental nuclear bomb drop on a house in Mars Bluff, South Carolina. Doesn't detonate, 3 people injured [ab 14] [MSM 39]
Neutron bomb 1958 07/12 United States project Development of the neutron bomb. A type of thermonuclear weapon that releases energy as energetic neutron radiation (fast neutrons) uses radiation as source of mortality [MSM 40]
Tsar Bomba 1961 10/30 Soviet Union test The most powerful nuclear weapon ever created. Its test on 30 October 1961 remains the most powerful explosive ever detonated on Nova Zembla. [CF 22] [MSM 41]
Operation Dominic 1962 04/25 Kiribati, Pacific test First in a series of tests in and around Kiribati the Pacific Ocean, the largest nuclear weapons testing program ever conducted by the United States and the last atmospheric test series conducted by the U.S. [ab 9] [CF 23] [MSM 42]
Cuban missile crisis 1962 10/14 Cuba Regarded as the moment in which the Cold War came closest to turning into a nuclear conflict [HB 1] [MSM 43]
Project Shoal 1963 10/26 Nevada test Underground test, it involved detonating a 12-kiloton nuclear device in granitic rock at a depth of approximately 1,211 feet (369 m) below ground surface. [CF 24] [MSM 44]
China 596 nuclear testing 1964 10/16 China test First Chinese test at the Lop Nur site, a uranium-235 implosion fission device and had a yield of 22 kilotons [MSM 45]
Palomares incident 1966 01/17 Almeria, Spain plane crash A B-52G bomber of the US Air Force collided with a KC-135 tanker during mid-air refuelling at 31,000 feet (9,450 m) over the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Spain. The KC-135 completely destroyed killing all 4 crew members. The B-52G broke apart, killing 3 of the 7 crew members aboard. Of the 4 hydrogen bombs the B-52G carried,3 were found on land near the small fishing village of Palomares, Almería, Spain. The non-nuclear explosives in 2 of the weapons detonated upon impact with the ground, resulting in the contamination of a 2-square-kilometer (490-acre) (0.78 square mile) area by plutonium. [CF 25] [MSM 46]
Mururoa nuclear testing 1966 07/02 Mururoa, Pacific test First French Nuclear test at Mururoa and Fangataufa atolls over a thirty-year period ending 1996 (200 nuclear tests, 46 atmospheric) [CF 26] [MSM 47]
Thule incident 1968 01/21 Greenland plane crash B-52 carrying 4 hydrogen bombs on a Cold War "Chrome Dome" alert mission over Baffin Bay when a cabin fire forced the crew to abandon the aircraft before they could carry out an emergency landing at Thule Air Base. 6 crew members ejected safely, but 1 who did not have an ejection seat was killed while trying to bail out. The bomber crashed onto sea ice in Greenland, causing the conventional explosives aboard to detonate and the nuclear payload to rupture and disperse, which resulted in radioactive contamination. [CF 27] [MSM 48]
Smiling Buddha nuclear testing 1974 05/18 India test First Indian nuclear test [MSM 49]
Three Mile Island accident 1979 03/28 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania The plant is widely known as the site of the most significant accident in United States commercial nuclear energy [CF 28] [MSM 50]
Fort Ritchie false Nuke alarm 1979 11/09 Fort Ritchie, Maryland NORAD systems failed when a technician in NORAD loaded a test tape, but failed to switch the system status to "test", causing a stream of constant false warnings to spread to two "continuity of government" bunkers as well as command posts worldwide. [MSM 51]
Kirana-I 1983 03/11 Pakistan test First test in Pakistan, underground. [MSM 52]
Chernobyl disaster 1986 04/26 Pripyat, Soviet Union Catastrophic nuclear accident that occurred at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine, Soviet Union [ab 15] [CF 29]
[CF 30]

Donen accident 1997 03/11 Japan A small explosion occurred in a nuclear reprocessing plant of the Dōnen. Windows were smashed and smoke escaped to the atmosphere. On Thursday, workers repaired 30 broken windows and 3 doors with duct tape. They had been damaged during the blast. At least 37 workers were exposed to elevated levels of radiation during the incident. A week after the event, meteorological officials detected unusually high levels of caesium 40 kilometers (25 miles) south-west of the plant. [MSM 54]
Kursk accident 2000 08/12 Barents Sea, Russia Nuclear submarine Kursk sinks in Barents Sea after two explosions (2.2 & 4.4 on Richter scale) at 108 metres, 24 sailors survived the first explosion in Compartment 9, but finally died (118 dead) [4]
[MSM 55]

Father Of All Bombs 2007 09/11 Russia test This weapon would therefore be the most powerful conventional (non-nuclear) weapon in the world. However, the veracity of Russia's claims concerning the weapon's size and power have been questioned by US defense analysts. Tom Burky, a senior research scientist at Battelle, saying "It's not even clear what kind of weapon the Russians tested." He questions if it was what some experts call a fuel-air explosive or if it was a thermobaric weapon. "Fuel-air and thermobaric bombs differ in usefulness". Burky says that the weapon depicted in the video appears to be a fuel-air explosive, based on its shape. [CF 34] [MSM 58]
M51 missile test failure 2013 05/05 Brittany, France accident M51 flight test missile failed after being fired by a submerged SSBN off the coast of Brittany. This was the first failed launch of the M51 after 5 successful launches since 2006. [CF 35] [MSM 59]
2014 Nuclear Security Summit 2014 03/24-25 Brittany, France It was the third edition of the conference, succeeding the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit. The 2014 summit was attended by 58 world leaders (5 of which from observing international organizations), some 5,000 delegates and some 3,000 journalists. The representatives attending the summit included U.S. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping in The Hague, the Netherlands. [CF 36] [MSM 60]
