US Conducts Subcritical Nuclear Test At Nevada

US Conducts Subcritical Nuclear Test At Nevada
  • The United States conducted a subcritical nuclear test at Nevada earlier this week. The experiment, the third under the administration of President Joe Biden, was carried out on Tuesday to collect essential data regarding the country’s nuclear warheads. The US Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration said, it relies on subcritical tests to support the safety and effectiveness of nuclear warheads, without the use of nuclear explosive testing.
  • The US government had announced a moratorium on tests involving nuclear explosions in 1992, however, successive administrations have continued subcritical tests. The last subcritical test took place in September 2021.
