    We Bet You'll Bomb This Test About Nuclear Weapons!

    Test your knowledge about nuclear trivia!

    1. Approximately how many nuclear weapons are there in the world?

      Correct! 
      Wrong! 

      15,000 nuclear weapons is enough to destroy the world many, many times over. At one point during the Cold War, there were as many as 70,000 nuclear weapons around the globe. Arms control agreements like the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaties (START and New START) have helped bring the numbers down.

      Correct! 
      Wrong! 

      The United States, Russia, France, the United Kingdom, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea and unofficially, Israel, are the only nine countries that possess nuclear weapons. The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which went into effect in 1970, is widely credited with preventing the mass spread of nuclear weapons.
