The ultimate terrorist attack is a nuclear explosion in a city. The likelihood of such an event is uncertain, but the consequences would be enormous. As many as a hundred thousand people could be killed, and many more left wounded or sick; several square miles of the city would be destroyed or contaminated, and the political and social consequences would be far-reaching.I thought we already had this technology, to an extent. Evidently I was mistaken or "lied to". The article suggests that being able to identify a nuclear signature might act as a deterrent to using nuclear weapons. I might buy into that, as long as the party that launched was the party that built.
