nuclear war

Commentator Gary Joiner reflects on the birth of the Atomic Age and its repercussions today with the resurgence in use of nuclear power as an energy source coupled with the proliferation of warheads by North Korea. The Atomic Age began at the University of Chicago on Dec. 2, 1942, with the creation of the first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction.

Commentator Gary Joiner takes us back to the creation of the atomic bomb, and the worldwide nuclear ripple effect for decades to come.
