Rationale[ edit ] By exploiting the peaceful uses of the "friendly atom" in medical applications, earth removal, and later in nuclear power plants, the nuclear industry and government sought to allay public fears about nuclear technology and promote the acceptance of nuclear weapons.
The United States Atomic Energy Commission chairman at the time, Lewis Straussannounced that the Plowshares project was intended to "highlight the peaceful applications of nuclear explosive devices and thereby create a climate of world opinion that is more favorable to weapons development and tests".
Proposed uses for nuclear explosives under Project Plowshare included widening the Panama Canalconstructing a new sea-level waterway through Nicaragua nicknamed the Pan-Atomic Canal, cutting paths through mountainous areas for highways, and connecting inland river systems.
Other proposals involved blasting underground caverns for water, natural gas, and petroleum storage. Serious consideration was also given to using these explosives for various mining operations.
One proposal suggested using nuclear blasts to connect underground aquifers in Arizona. Another plan involved surface blasting on the western slope of California 's Sacramento Valley for a water transport project. It was never carried out due to concerns for the native populations and the fact that there was little potential use for the harbor to justify its risk and expense.
In the s, a proposal was suggested for a modified in situ shale oil extraction process which involved creation of a rubble chimney a zone in the oil shale formation created by breaking the rock into fragments using a nuclear explosive.
The explosion released 3. The test had many objectives. The most public of these involved the generation of steam which could then be used to generate electricity.
Another objective was the production of useful radioisotopes and their recovery. Another experiment involved neutron time-of-flight physics.
A fourth experiment involved geophysical studies based upon the timed seismic source. Only the last objective was considered a complete success. The blast unintentionally vented radioactive steam while the press watched.
The partly developed Project Coach detonation experiment that was to follow adjacent to the Gnome test was then canceled. The radioactive dust plume headed northeast and then east towards the Mississippi River [ citation needed ].
Over the next 11 years 26 more nuclear explosion tests were conducted under the U. The radioactive blast debris from U. Funding quietly ended in Three kiloton detonations took place simultaneously at depths of 1, 1, and 2, meters. If it had been successful, plans called for the use of hundreds of specialized nuclear explosives in the western Rockies gas fields.
The previous two tests had indicated that the produced natural gas would be too radioactive for safe use; the Rio Blanco test found that the three blast cavities had not connected as hoped, and the resulting gas still contained unacceptable levels of radionuclides. It was estimated that even after 25 years of production of all the natural gas deemed recoverable, only 15 to 40 percent of the investment would be recouped.
Also, the concept that stove burners in California might soon emit trace amounts of blast radionuclides into family homes did not sit well with the general public.Teach students methods to determine the meaning of unknown words, including using syntax and dictionaries, with this lesson plan.
Two video lessons outline instruction as students apply. The tax on unrelated business income applies to most organizations exempt from tax under section (a). These organizations include charitable, religious, scientific, and other organizations described in section (c), as well as employees' trusts forming part of pension, profit-sharing, and stock bonus plans described in section (a).

Building layout. If it is built as planned, Sky City would be the tallest building in the world, until the Jeddah Tower in Jeddah is complete (currently under construction, planned to be opened in ), with floors. The construction plan calls for it to be built from pre-fabricated units constructed on site in an unprecedentedly short period of 90 days.
