A nuclear weapon: is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission or a combination of fission and fusion. Both reactions release vast quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter; a modern thermonuclear weapon weighing little more than a thousand kilograms can produce an explosion comparable to the detonation of more than a billion kilograms of conventional high explosive.

<ul><li>Hiroshima was the primary target of the first nuclear bombing mission on August 6, with Nagasaki being the alternative target. </li></ul><ul><li>70,000 to 80,000 people were killed immediately and another 70.000 were injured in Hiroshima. </li></ul><ul><li>80,000 had died from the bombing in Nagasaki. </li></ul><ul><li>The code name for the bomb used in Hiroshima was called, “ Little Boy. ” The bomb used in Nagasaki was called, “ Fat Boy. ” </li></ul>Little Boy Fat Man
<ul><li>Nuclear weapons are tools of mass destruction. They are also a possible danger to our would and you have to understand the consequences of using them. </li></ul><ul><li>It also very dangerous, The uranium can get into the skin and damage your blood, cells and organs. </li></ul><ul><li>The nuclear energy can damage whole city and wipe out entire country in just few seconds. That is the reason why people try to stop Iran build nuclear weapon. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Nuclear Weapons has changed human society in the certain way. It lead the END of the WW2 and reduced the pain that people suffered from the War. </li></ul><ul><li>The use of nuclear weapons has killed many people. In result of that there are an abundance of people who hate nuclear weapons, and people who like them. </li></ul><ul><li>The Technology has improved when the nuclear energy have been found. Open a new technology field. </li></ul>
<ul><li>It may eventually protect us one day from a nuclear attack by a rogue or terrorist nation such as North Korea or Iran. </li></ul><ul><li>It can defend us against missile delivery of chemical or biological weapons. </li></ul><ul><li>Military and scientific jobs are created from the project. </li></ul><ul><li>The missile defense system may discourage terrorist nations from even trying to develop nuclear weapons. </li></ul><ul><li>The system has little chance of success against a massive scale attack or against a terrorist strike. </li></ul><ul><li>The towering costs for a system that may never be used would be better spent on fighting poverty, improving education. </li></ul><ul><li>Spending large amounts of money on these types of projects leads to a useless arms races. </li></ul>Love it Hate it
<ul><li>Well the people who support it believe that nuclear weapons one day may help us win a war or keep other countries intimidated by the fact that we have them. </li></ul><ul><li>People who object to this topic feel the way they do because they think that maybe one day nuclear weapons may destroy the earth due to a war and the use of not just ours but other countries as well using nuclear weapons. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The entire world would be a more secure planet if we were free from nuclear weapons. Nuclear weapons are the only type of weapon in existence that have the power to wipe out the human species and countless other species. (nonukes.org) </li></ul><ul><li>Nuclear weapons have not prevented any wars, which is what they were suppose to do in the first place. Starting to Conclude….. </li></ul>
It’s important to think about the use of nuclear weapons because there may be a war or other conflict in which we may need to use nuclear force in order to defend ourselves. This topic was very interesting to research and present because there are so many things about nuclear weapons that people do not know about. Basically you are either for or against the use of these weapons of mass destruction there is no in between. Now I just got to ask are nuclear weapons good or bad?
Discussion Questions <ul><li>Do you think if every country had nuclear weapons would there be any more wars? </li></ul><ul><li>Will terrorist ever use nuclear weapons? </li></ul><ul><li>Why do you think poor countries want to develop nuclear weapons? </li></ul><ul><li>Are nuclear weapons necessary in order to defend our nation? </li></ul><ul><li>How could we prevent a nuclear war outbreak? </li></ul>
