I ve never read a passage so erotic that subtly turns in gross horror The incredible depth and detail of the ignition of the Mike thermonuclear device and all of the physics involved in it s operation as it expands outwards and turns into a wave of destruction WTF moment 1 Curtis LeMay casually flying spy planes over Russia with possible hopes that he could start WWIII He d spent years getting the US bombing force into a potent force and seemed extremely into not letting the force go to waste He seems correct that in 1952 or 1954 if he wanted to wipe out Russia and their ability to retaliate he could and that if the choice was between mutually destruction later or Russia destruction now he was correct But also we re alive now so that choice wasn t necessary He also had comments about how the us military strength at the time was way than the rest of the world and how the US could have flexed it s military to gain power It seems like military people really seem to think about death differently than most civilians and I d like to understand that better In General leMay s mind 80Million Russian deaths is fine as it would increase the US power relative to the rest of the world The deaths don t really count as part of his calculus In most people s mind 80 million deaths and the destruction of Russian culture really outweigh US becoming relatively powerfulWTF moment 2 A bunch of people had some last minute wtf are we doing let s stop this thoughts before the first H bomb test They were thinking if there is anytime to negotiate a no bomb testing treaty now was the time to do it before anyone exploded any H bombs The bomb testing was 2 days before the presidential election and the people sent this guy down to the Marshall Islands to convince the bomb people to have some technical difficulties and delay the explosion a few days just in case the next president had a different opinion than Truman So the guy goes down there talks to a bunch of people and then they say whatever you re call dude But then the guy doesn t want Truman to be mad at him or something so he says go ahead and explode it as normal Wtf dude history is counting on youWTF moment 3 There really were thousands of Russian spies all over the US in the 40s I m interested in whether the Red Scare was a bit based in truth than I thought Also though something that came up several times in the book is if you are a weird socially difficult person than others will use politics to remove you from power citing your opposing views lack of management skills past connections to political groups etc Some of the spies and many people with soviet sympathies had no idea what was actually going on in the country but were passing along information because they hoped it would be helpful to this idealistic movementThe first computer program run on an electronic computer ENIAC was a monte carlo simulation of a thermonuclear explosion as von Neuman was trying to figure out the feasibility of the weapon WTF moment 4 The United States bombing of North Korea had about 15 2 million casualties about the same number as all of the Japanese casualties in WW2 They destroyed 10 100% of the largest 20 cities or so looks like maybe 60% on average Basically all urban areas were bombed In general I feel like I have empathy for those guys in Idaho that live in bunkers in the middle of nowherepsuedo WTF moment 5 An unarmed atom bomb exploded on the runway about 30 miles from San Francisco when it was taking off to go to Korea There was an accident and the plane crashed on takeoff At first I thought this was a big deal but then I realized that an unarmed A bomb is mostly just a bunch of normal explosive without the plutonium core to arm it It did throw normal U 238 around the runway which just seems like a regular normal level of military fuckup Now I hope that planes don t crash when they fly armed bombsI don t think these are necessarily the moments that are going to stay with me but I sort of have to process them before I can start thinking about what the arms race was doing and why it occurred and the similarities between Los Alamos and other technology organizationsNot as good of a book as the making of the atomic bomb but I still learned a bunch and it gave me lots of feels on several topics so 5

Richard Rhodes described the beginnings of the atomic age in his The Making of the Atomic Bomb The scientific military Manhattan Project was born of the necessity to beat the Nazis into production of atomic bombs and ended with their use by the United States against Japan Dark Sun tells the history of nuclear bomb development since that time It contains a wealth of scientific descriptions such as a discussion of the physics of thermonuclear TN devices and their construction eg Teller s Alarm Clock design compared with Sakharov s Layer Cake hydrogen bomb but the lay reader will find the book easily understandable and informative This book is in a way interesting to read than Rhodes earlier book containing a detailed description of the spying which produced the Soviet atomic bombDark Sun starts before the chronological ending of Rhodes The Making of the Atomic Bomb The United States was sending thousands of tons of material to Russia during World War II in order to help its wartime ally fight Germany The Roosevelt government had actually granted Lend Lease to Russia after Hitler had invaded that country and before the United States entered the war Lend Lease the shipment of war material without prior payment by the receiving nation with promise to pay somewhere in the post war future had been devised by Franklin Roosevelt as a means of helping Great Britain to survive after the war started in 1939The interesting thing about this arrangement was that the Soviets were using this conduit of weapons and materials as a means of carrying out an espionage program in the United States I had not realized until I read this book how much the Russians were taking advantage of this situation Huge uantities of industrial information and even strategic metals passed under the lax noses of US customs and went to Russia during the warThis espionage system became the vehicle for Soviet spies and secret agents to make contact with scientists working on atomic bomb development in the United States and England most notably at the Los Alamos atomic laboratory in New Mexico Joseph Stalin had ordered the start of atomic bomb development in his country in early 1943 Physicist Igor Kurchatov was placed in charge of the scientific program which was patterned after the American program since it was able to use tested and tried methods stolen from Los Alamos The secret materials were obtained in the United States through agents of the intelligence apparatus established by Lavrenti Beria the head of Stalin s Secret Police There were several Los Alamos workers selling secrets to the Soviets but chief among them was Klaus Fuchs a German emigre scientist working for the British at Los Alamos Fuchs had knowledge of all atomic development secret processes and sent everything he knew to Beria s operatives Machinest David Greenglass Ethel Rosenberg s brother passed along drawings of implosion bomb designs through operatives working with his brother in law Julius Rosenberg Harry Gold was part of the GreenglassRosenberg connection Ethel s actual involvement or lack of it still remains hotly contested among historians and surviving family members Others who engaged in spy activity for the Soviets included Steve Nelson Haakon Chevalier Israel Halperin Morton Sobell and Alan Nunn MayThe Soviets were receiving so much good atomic intelligence that Beria and Kurchatov suspected American intelligence was deliberately trying to redirect them with bogus information They confirmed the veracity of the information by checking the data from one source against another but the pressure of having a good part of World War II being fought on their soil kept Russia from going full steam with their bomb program until after the war The United States government was stunned to discover that the Russians detonated their first bomb a copy of the US Trinity bomb the first atomic bomb ever detonated in July 1945 on August 29 1949 earlier estimates were that Russia would need upwards of twenty years to develop an atomic bombRhodes paints a picture of this immediate post World War II period as a time when history could have taken different directions and ended up with different outcomes he makes it clear that the way things actually happened involving decades of nuclear arms race were not the optimum result The post war years saw the United States building up a stockpile of atomic bombs that it initially felt it had a monopoly on President Harry Truman acted in accordance with a policy of containment that attempted to check the perceived expansionism and paranoia being displayed by the Soviet Union Winston Churchill s Iron Curtain speech of 1946 confirmed that our old wartime ally was now our rival Things became strained among the former war allies when the Truman Doctrine announced the future Cold War doctrine of the need to support free people resisting subjegation clearly aimed at Soviet expansionist activities Russia answered this in less than a year with the Soviet occupation of Prague on February second 1948 the end of US USSR collaboration including the end of any chance for nuclear disarmament negotiations can be dated from this point The first Cold War confrontation occurred shortly thereafter with the Russian blockade of Berlin in June 1948 which was combatted and finally defeated in May 1949 by the allies Berlin Airlift Rhodes seems to argue that the fear and paranoia over the beginning of the Cold War caused the scales of military policy to tip in favor of the war hawks who brought on the greatest arms race in history Rhodes is completely aware that deteriorating relations among the former World War II allies were a fact of life and would cause considerable post war problems He also is not a Luddite His view which seems to be alligned with Robert Oppenheimer s view of the development of nuclear weapons is that the building of the atomic bomb by the United States was a necessary and spectacular scientificmilitary achievement Reviewer s note Oppenheimer pointedly did not join some of his former Los Alamos colleagues who postwar expressed guilt about their involvement in the development of nuclear weapons This philosophy does not however embrace the arguments made by atomic scientists like Ernest Laurence Luis Alvarez and Edward Teller that the United States should have gone into a crash program to develop thermonuclear bombs from Rhodes Arsenals of Folly The Making of the Nuclear Arms Race Vintage 2007 p 70 Bombs made by fusing hydrogen to helium releasing enough nuclear energy to dwarf fission weapons ie with fireballs measured in miles rather than feet and their yields measured in megatons or millions of tons of TNT euivalent explosive power instead of in kilotons or thousands of tons of euivalent TNT More pertinent the policies which called for the eventual building of literally thousands of nuclear and TN bombs are uestionedHistorically that argument is over Harry Truman gave the green light to proceed with TN development in January 1950 This was the same month that Fuchs was convicted of espionage Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and others were also arrested for espionage the Rosenberg s were later convicted and sentenced to death Numerous international developments helped to support Teller s H Bomb rationale at this time including the Russian and Communist China supported invasion of South Korea in June 1950 Senator Joe McCarthy was capitalizing on the public anxieties arising over these troubling examples of threats to the American way of life by ratcheting up the Red Fever with his ever growing lists of never disclosed supposed federal government employees who were working for the Soviet UnionRhodes main point is that nothing good came from the transition of Los Alamos National Laboratory into a post war perpetual builder of WMD for the arms race He asserts along with Oppenheimer that the United States could have been amply served by a military which relied on a mix of conventional weapons and smaller tactical battlefield nuclear weapons Reviewer s note So called Theater weapons with limited explosive power than TN weapons intended for use primarily against military instead of civilian targets Having thousands of nuclear weapons available at an eventual total cost to the United States alone of four trillion dollars only caused the possibility of world destruction while contributing nothing to our ability to enhance the outcome of the wars we have fought since World War II For the record the United States detonated its first Hydrogen Bomb in the South Pacific on November 1 1952 The Soviets exploded their first Hydrogen Bomb in November 1955 Their bomb was developed by physicist and future peace activist Andrei Sakharov Rhodes does not discuss how the Russians obtained the information to build their bomb I checked this on the internet and apparently no definitive records from the old Soviet Union in this regard have been made available to researchers of this subject There is speculation that Soviet scientific analysis of fallout from US testing at Bikini Atoll in 1954 provided key information another possibility is that Sakharov solved this puzzle through his own knowledge of physics
