    Senior staff members of the United Nations nuclear agency have concluded in a confidential analysis that Iran has acquired “sufficient information to be able to design and produce a workable” atom bomb.

    NEWS FLASH:

    So do I.

    And now... so do all of YOU.

    This isn't a story. Having the fuel for a nuclear bomb IS. We need to keep our eye on the ball here when it comes to Iran. We did a billion different things wrong with Iraq. Iran has the FUEL to BUILD a nuclear bomb. That's what we have to worry about.

    If the information is right there, how come so few countries have nuclear weapons?
    Don't ask a Republican that question. They think it's because the US told them not to.

    Republicans think you can jimmie together a nuclear bomb from a couple of glow in the dark watches, a can a hairspray, some recently chewed bubble gum and a few other odd and ends a la McGiver.

    What do you expect from people who are anti education and believe studying science can lead to mental illness?

    Engineering and Design of Nuclear Weapons

    Interestingly enough, the United States government conducted a controlled experiment called the Nth Country Experiment to see how much effort was actually required to develop a viable fission weapon design starting from nothing. In this experiment, which ended on 10 April 1967, three newly graduated physics students were given the task of developing a detailed weapon design using only public domain information. The project reached a successful conclusion, that is, they did develop a viable design (detailed in the classified report UCRL-50248) after expending only three man-years of effort over two and a half calendar years. In the years since, much more information has entered the public domain so that the level of effort required has obviously dropped further.
