The Nuclear Weapons Enterprise - Looking Back and Looking Forward

Time: 8:00 AM - 11:30 AM| Tuesday, February 11
This seminar will take a look at the Weapons Complex from the Manhattan Project to today with projections of what the future holds in store. The speakers have all been engaged in the enterprise for the last 30 years or more and bring both a perspective of how we got where we are today and a vision for what the future needs to be. This is intended to be an interactive session, encouraging attendees to challenge the assumptions, put forth their own views, and help further the important debate about the future of the nuclear deterrent.
