Nuclear testing is critical to the protection of these United States to ensure America is at least one step ahead of the enemy. That has been the goal since the beginning of the Manhattan Project, when nuclear weapons testing began at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Specific and ultra successful nuclear bomb testing was initiated at a place called Trinity in southern New Mexico, in the mid-1940s. This testing success launched non-stop nuclear testing in search of new and greater nuclear weapons. Consequently, nuclear weapons testing continued. The quest was to develop the ultimate weapon in nuclear warfare, with the ultimate weapon, hopefully, far surpassing the destructive power of the up-close and personal nuclear bomb testing results meted out at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Security debacles at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2002 brought, at times, the research of nuclear testing to a standstill, when it was revealed that the lab’s nuclear weapons testing had critical security flaws. For awhile, this revelation brought an end to nuclear bomb testing until these severely bankrupt security matters were resolved.
Glenn Walp, the lab’s top security officer in 2002, authored a book in 2010, entitled, Implosion at Los Alamos: How Crime, Corruption and Cover-Ups Jeopardize America’s Nuclear Weapons Secrets. This book clarifies the reason for nuclear testing and nuclear weapons testing per se, and more specifically, why nuclear bomb testing was temporarily suspended.
