1960 ... Nuclear Weapons are SAFE!

 ... important PR for 'Operation Chrome Dome' ; keeping nuclear armed SAC aircraft aloft all of the time. This was a response to fear of a sneak missile attack. ( It is also the setting for both movies 'Dr. Strangelove' and 'Failsafe')

They have proven to be extraordinarily safe. Seventy years of nuclear weapons on a hair trigger, and not a single accidental detonation. That's a better record than the NASA, the airlines, and the nuclear power industry combined. Nuclear weapons are the only one of those three that's designed to kill people, and hasn't killed any by accident.
