Eminent Scientist Stephen Hawking has lately cautioned the world that the humankind has just a century left to colonize another planet or natural satellite in order to survive the species.
There are five countries possessing nuclear weapons states on the Earth: China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States. These are authoritatively perceived as having such weapons by the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. There are likewise four different nations that have atomic weapons: Pakistan, India, Israel and North Korea. These nations didn’t sign the Treaty and together have an expected 340 atomic weapons.
This settlement recognizes and legitimizes their armouries, yet they shouldn’t fabricate or keep up them until the end of time. For sure, they have resolved to dispose of them.
Yet, it’s Russia and the US that have by a wide margin the most on the planet – overwhelming every single other nation by all things considered sharing 88 for every penny of the world’s total accumulated nukes.
The world’s present gathering of 14,900 atomic weapons has enough energy to murder a large number of individuals and level many urban areas.
Regardless of the possibility that the atomic power plants would quit working without anyone else, it will prompt ionizing radiation affirming the finish of an immense masses.
As indicated by the NukeMap site, the dropping of the B-83, the biggest bomb in the present US arms stockpile, would kill 1.4m individuals in the initial 24 hours. Furthermore, 3.7m individuals would be harmed, as the warm radiation range achieves 13 km.
Moreover, the “Tsar Bomba” is the biggest USSR bomb tried. On the off chance that this bomb was dropped on New York, it is assessed that it could execute 7.6m individuals and harm 4.2m more. The atomic aftermath could achieve an estimated zone of 7,880km on a 15mph breeze, affecting millions of more individuals.
Both America and Russia’s weapons stores are managed by a few settlements that place constraints on the numbers and sorts of warheads and conveyance frameworks they have.
I can review what Albert Einstein had said in regards to the potential danger of the atomic weapons, that “I know not with what weapons World War III will be battled, however, World War IV will be battled with sticks and stones.”
