Fukushima Crisis Updates

Today In Radiation Safety History

On October 2, 1965 the United States performed the second of three planned nuclear tests in Alaska. Code name Milrow was part of the Nuclear Weapons Testing Program, but it’s the purpose was to test an island, not a weapon." It was a "calibration shot", intended to produce data from which the impact of larger explosions could be predicted. The Milrow detonated with an approximate yield of 1 to 1.2 megatons.

The shockwave reached the surface with an acceleration of over 35 g (340 m/s2), causing a dome of the Earth's surface, approximately 3 km (2 mi) in radius, to rise about 5 meters (16 ft). The blast "turned the surrounding sea to froth" and "forced geysers of mud and water from local streams and lakes 50 feet (15 m) into the air".

A few days after the Milrow test, the “Don’t Make a Wave Committee” was organized at a meeting in Vancouver, Canada. The Committee's name referred to predictions made by a Vancouver journalist named Bob Hunter, later to become Greenpeace member 000. He wrote that the test would cause earthquakes and a tsunami. On the agenda was whether to fight another blast at the island, or whether to expand their efforts to fight all perceived threats against the environment. As he was leaving, one man gave the traditional farewell of the peace-activist movement, "Peace." "Make it a green peace," replied another member. The Committee would later become Greenpeace.
