Scientists first developed nuclear weapons technology during World War II. The Atomic Age, also known as the Atomic Era, is the period of history following the detonation of the first nuclear weapon, The Gadget at the Trinity test in New Mexico, on Jduring World War gh nuclear chain reactions had been hypothesized in and the first artificial self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction (Chicago Pile-1) had taken place in December.

The United States Atomic Energy Commission, commonly known as the AEC, was an agency of the United States government established after World War II by U.S. Congress to foster and control the peacetime development of atomic science and technology. President Harry S. Truman signed the McMahon/Atomic Energy Act on August 1,transferring the control of atomic Headquarters: Washington, D.C.

Beginning in the s, atomic gardens were a part of Atoms for Peace, a program to develop peaceful uses of fission energy after World War gardens were established in laboratories in the United States, Europe, parts of the former USSR, India, and these gardens were initially designed with the aim of testing the effects of radiation on plant.

The destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by atomic bombs marked the end of World War II and the beginning of the nuclear age. As tensions between East and West settled into a Cold War, scientists in the United States, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union conducted tests and developed more powerful nuclear weapons.

Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living. The way to win an atomic war is to make certain it never starts.

And the way to make sure it never starts is to abolish the dangerous costly nuclear stockpiles which imprison mankind. One of the most famous speeches of the Cold War was given by President Dwight D. Eisenhower before the United Nations on December 8, Eisenhower was anxious to reduce the threat from the growing arsenals of nuclear weapons and instead develop peaceful applications of atomic energy for all nations to enjoy, or "Atoms for Peace.".The military exploitation of atomic energy depends, in large part, upon the same methods and processes as would be required for industrial uses.

We are not convinced that the spreading of the specialized information regarding the practical application of atomic energy, before it is possible to devise effective, reciprocal, and enforceable."Atoms for Peace" created the ideological background for the creation of the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, but also gave political cover for the U.S.
