ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the nuclear weapons testing in the U.S. in 1961. It highlights the announcement of U.S. President John F. Kennedy that the country had completed its first nuclear-weapons test in nearly three years. It comments that compared to some of the atomic devices that the Russians have exploded, the low yield U.S. test seemed as tame as a firecracker, but it carried the country a step forward in its tactical weapons development.
