Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022 has increased the threat of nuclear use and reintroduced the dangers of nuclear weapons to the international public. The Doomsday Clock of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists now stands at 90 seconds to midnight, the closest to global catastrophe it has ever been. Meanwhile, nuclear weapons technology and delivery systems continue to proliferate across different regions of the world. In the first Faculty Friday of the academic year, Assistant Professor Debak Das will discuss his research on nuclear crises, proliferation of nuclear delivery vehicles, and nuclear history. Join us for a wide-ranging discussion on nuclear weapons, Oppenheimer, and cyber/nuclear existential risk in international security. Register for this virtual event here
