The Second World War & Hiroshima
The Nuclear World Today
While American censorship over the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs was in force, the nuclear powers continued testing weapons.
They did so in many parts of the world, from Bikini Atoll in the South Pacific Ocean to Nevada in the USA, the Sahara Desert in North Africa, Maralinga in South Australia, and many states of the former USSR.
The U.S. and Russia are joint signatories to a Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), yet there remain tens of thousands of nuclear weapons in the world today.
