A reactor accident occurred on the USSR ballistic missile submarine K-19 while it was on exercises in the North Atlantic. The K-19 (hull number 901) was the lead ship of the Project 958 (Hotel I) class, launched 8 April 1959 and commissioned 12 November 1960; it carried three R-13 SLBMs. On 4 July 1961 a leak developed at an inaccessible part of the primary cooling circuit, in the nuclear reactor, causing a sudden pressure drop and triggering emergency systems. The crew improvised a system to supply coolant, involving prolonged exposure to radioactive steam and other gases in the reactor compartment, the crew sent teams of two in intervals to set up a new coolant system while facing radioactive material. They wore nothing but chemical suits. Eight crew members sustained doses of 5,000 to 6,000 rem; the rest of the crew sustained significant doses as well (at least 100 rem). A diesel submarine evacuated the crew, and the K-19 was towed back to the Kola Peninsula. For the eight crewmembers with fatal doses, time from exposure to death in days was 6, 6, 6, 8, 9, 11, 16, and 19. The remaining crew were hospitalized with radiation sickness until September. Replacement of the reactor compartment was completed from 1962 to 1964, and the two damaged reactors were dumped in Abrosimova Bay in the Kara Sea. Consequences: 8 fatalities, at least 31 injuries. The movie K-19 The widowmaker is based on the nuclear reactor incident (Harrison ford and Liam Neeson)
Physics students, Following our watching of "Fat Man and Little Boy" this week, you might be interested in... The Green Glass Sea by Ellen Klages Two girls spend a year in Los Alamos as their parents work on the secret "gadget" that will end World War II. Dewey is a mechanically minded 10-year-old who gets along fine with the scientists at the site, but is teased by girls her own age. Clear prose brings readers right into the unusual atmosphere of the secretive scientific community, seen through the eyes of the kids and their families. Those who already know about Los Alamos's historical significance will experience the story in a different, but powerful, way. Hiroshima by John Hersey When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, few could have anticipated its potential for devastation. Pulitzer prize-winning author John Hersey recorded the stories of Hiroshima residents shortly after the explosion and, in 1946, Hiroshima was published, giving the world first-hand accounts from people who had survived it. The words of Miss Sasaki, Dr. Fujii, Mrs. Nakamara, Father Kleinsorg, Dr. Sasaki, and the Reverend Tanimoto gave a face to the statistics that saturated the media and solicited an overwhelming public response. Whether you believe the bomb made the difference in the war or that it should never have been dropped, "Hiroshima" is a must read for all of us who live in the shadow of armed conflict.
Little Boy was the codename of the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 by the B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay, piloted by Colonel Paul Tibbets of the United States Army Air Forces It was the first atomic bomb ever used as a weapon, and was dropped three days before the "Fat Man" bomb was used against Nagasaki. The weapon was developed by the Manhattan Project during World War II. It derived its explosive power from the nuclear fission of uranium-235. The Hiroshima bombing was the second artificial nuclear explosion in history (the first was the "Trinity" test), and it was the first uranium-based detonation. Approximately 600 milligrams of mass were converted into energy. It exploded with a destructive power equivalent to between 13 and 18 kilotons of TNT (estimates vary) and killed approximately 140,000 people. Its design was never tested at the Trinity test site, unlike the more complex plutonium bomb (Fat Man), which was tested. The available supply of enriched uranium was very small at that time, and it was felt that the simple design of a uranium "gun" type bomb was so sure to work that there was no need to test it. Fat Man is the codename for the atomic bomb that was detonated over Nagasaki, Japan, by the United States on August 9, 1945, at 11:02 am (JSP). It was the second of the only two nuclear weapons to be used in warfare and was the third man-made nuclear explosion. The name also refers more generically to the early nuclear weapon designs of U.S. weapons based on the "Fat Man" model. It was an implosion-type weapon with a plutonium core, similar to the Trinity device tested only a month earlier in New Mexico.
Did you know: Oppenheimer had a mistress whom he had to give up for the Manhattan project. She then killed herself. Oppenheimer’s wife knew, but thought he “deserved the best”. General Groves was unpopular amongst the military, because the Manhattan project was costing so much, and they were taking the money from other areas of the war. General Groves & the scientists were in a constant battle about “national security” vs “academic freedom”. When the US forces reached Berlin, they found out they had no bomb, nor any real hope of ever getting one. General Groves kept this information from the scientists, many of whom were Jewish. Whether we used it on the Germans or someone else, he wanted to have “the biggest stick in the neighborhood”. The character Michael is based on a composite of Louis Slotin & Harry Daghlian. As the project neared completion, the scientists started wondering about the ethics of what they were doing. Many of them signed a letter to the president to NOT deploy the bomb, calling it atrocious. While Oppenheimer had his doubts about the morality of it, he knew his place in history depended on it being dropped, so argued for it to the president – with a very mixed heart. Oppenheimer refused to work on the H bomb, and his security clearance got revoked. (Edward Teller is the father of the H bomb, and opened the 2 nd National Lab, LLNL, in Livermore – where their now trying to get fusion power plants.) The resonant words of the Enola Gay's copilot, surveying the destruction just after the bomb hit Hiroshima, were: "What have we done?" See more about Fat Man & Little Boy on next slide.
Korea test-fires missile, slams Security Council, May 29, 2009, by SIYOUNG LEE North Korea defiantly test-fired another short-range missile Friday and warned it would act in "self-defense" if provoked by the U.N. Security Council, which is considering tough sanctions against the communist regime for conducting a nuclear test. It is the sixth short-range missile North Korea has test-fired since Monday's nuclear test. The missile is a new type of ground-to-air missile estimated to have a range of up to 160 miles. The North's Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency, "If the U.N. Security Council makes a further provocation, it will be inevitable for us to take further self-defense measures." The North has been strident since its nuclear test - which it has also called a self-defensive measure. It did not specify what further action it was considering in response to U.N. resolutions, or what it would consider a provocation. North Korea also accused the Security Council of hypocrisy. "The nuclear test conducted in our nation this time is the Earth's 2,054 th nuclear test. The five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council have conducted 99.99% of the total nuclear tests."

Relativity: We learned earlier that Newton’s 3 Laws do NOT work for things that are REALLY REALLY fast & REALLY REALLY small. Really really small is the quantum world of inside the atom – elementary particles. Quarks just don’t like to follow rules! Special Relativity is about things going really really fast (# x 10 7 m/s). Because they don’t follow N’s Laws either, REALLY whacky things can happen... time slows down, mass gets bigger, and length gets shorter. General Relativity is another thing Einstein came up with. It covers the “curvature of Space-Time” (which you should have read about in your Physics book) and talks about how light can bend around and even into BIG MASSIVE things like Black Holes.
