The new nuclear landscape and its implications for international security

Rachel Bronson, executive director and publisher of Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, moderates a discussion on today’s nuclear landscape with Michael Morell, former acting director of the CIA; US Representative Bill Foster, 11th District of Illinois; and Robert Rosner, the William E. Wrather Distinguished Service Professor in Astronomy & Astrophysics and Physics at the University of Chicago and co-chair of the Bulletin's Science and Security Board. This discussion is the first event of the series “Nuclear Reactions–1942: A Historic Breakthrough, an Uncertain Future,” in which the University of Chicago will commemorate and discuss the complex legacy of the first controlled, self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction on December 2, 1942.
