ANOTHER ICBM TEST LAUNCH SET FOR MARCH 1

Vandenberg Air Force Base plans yet another Minuteman III ICBM test on March 1, 2012, the 58th anniversary of the Castle Bravo / Bikini Atoll test. Castle Bravo was the code name given to the first U.S. test of a dry-fuel thermonuclear hydrogen bomb, detonated on March 1, 1954 at Bikini Atoll, Marshall Islands, the first test of Operation Castle. The Castle Bravo test had an explosive yield of 15 megatons, which is 1,000 times the power of the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima. The Bravo test caused widespread damage to numerous atolls in the Marshall Islands that is still felt to this day. The Marshall Islands also happened to be the target of this Minuteman missile test.  See MacGregor Eddy’s blog for further info.
