- Facts About The H-Bomb -
When millions of Americans saw vil defense preparedness. Organic- lur device would be suffi-ied over
pictures of the tremendous fireball
of the first hydrogen test explo-
sion in “Operation Ivy", measur-
ing 3*« miles in diameter, many
wondered how people in any large
city could survive such a holo-
Vet the H-bomb, despite the wi-
ler range of its destructive force,
will not destroy the earth.
There will always be much more
of America undamaged, and many
more millions of our people alive
and eager to fight hack and win,
than there will be death and des-
Here are some of the facts we
nust learn to live with in what
President Eisenhower has called
"an age of peril."
t. Atomic bombs and hydrogen
bombs do exist as deliverable wea-
pons of war. The Russians are
known beyond any doubt to pos-
sess a growing stockpile of such
2. Even the small atomic wea-
pons now make one plane able to
deliver as much destruction as
could be carried by about 1,000 air-
planes using conventional bombs in
World War II.
3. No absolute military defense
exists today or i^ likely to exist in
the foreseeable future. A determin-
ed aggressor could deliver atomic
or hydrogen bombs on our cities,
should he decide to attack our
4. A bomb 1,000 times as power-
ful as the Hiroshima bomb will not
cause damage 1,000 times as far
away — only 10 times as far. I!
will harm an area only 100 times
as large — not 1,000 times as
5. There are practical limits to
the amount of destruction that can
be cause by a single bomb of any
6. The best means of protection
rom the immediate effects of ato-
mic or hydrogen bombs are dis-
tance from the center of the ex-
plosion and the protection of suit-
7. Cooperate fully with your lo-
cal civil defense authorities. They
want to help you learn how to sur-
vive, if we are attacked. What you
do before the explosion can save
your life. What you do after the
explosion can also save lives, in-
cluding your own.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF
ATOMIC OR HYDROGEN BOMBS
No matter how big the size of
atomic weapons, we must concern
ourselves with their effects on peo-
ple and things. While the dividing
lines between various damage
areas of atomic blast are never
sharp and clear cut, the effects
are felt generally in four different
1. The A-ring — a central area
around the bull's eye or Ground
Zero in which destruction is so
complete that neither people nor
buildings have much chance of
2. The B-ring — a larger belt of
heavy damage around the central
area. This ring is about three
times as large as the A-ring. In
the B-ring injury to people and
destruction of buildings would be
severe but not complete.
3. The C-ring a still larger cir-
cular belt of lesser damage around
'he B ring. Injuries to people in
this area would range from mo-
derate to light.
4. The D-ring — where damage
would be light and all of the rest
of the countryside beyond the limit
of even light damage from the
blast. However, much of this area
can be affected by the fallout of
radioactive particles resulting
from certain kinds of nuclear at-
If you live or work near t h e
heart of a probable aiming point,
it will take a well-rehearsed civil
defense dispersal plan and early
attack warning from the Air Force
to evacuate you to safety when
the alert sounds.
If you live or work within reach
of secondary blast effects, in an
area where damage probably
would be heavy, dispersal is still
your best chance of staying alive.
If you live so far from the cen-
ter of a target area that damage
probably would be light, you still
need a home shelter for greater
security from both blast and ra-
dioactive fall-out. And you should
know how to render first aid. put
out small fires, and take other ci-
vil defense measures to help your-
self and others.
If you live well beyond any like-
ly target area, you still need to
self. And you should plan adequate
cover against radioactive fail-out.
No longer can any American
avoid the responsibility for learn-
ing everything possible about per-
sonal and community survival. All
160 million Americans at home
Smust accept an active part in ci- ]
ed civil defense is both a shield an area of somewhat more than
and a sword. It can reduce appro ' 300 square miles — about the area
ciably, help us get back on our
fed faster, maintain our will to
win. But a sound civil defense,
coupled with a strong military de-
fense, can also help deter an ene-
my from starting a war by mak-
ing aggression unprofitable.
The H-bomb is bigger than the
A-Bomb — but it is still a bomb.
It has its limits, as does any
other weapon. It makes the civil
defense problem larger, but not
different. Your survival actions
are even more important — be-
cause they are actions that only
you can take for the protection of
yourself and your family.
Learn and practice civil defense
preparedness in your home, your
neighborhood, your community.
Then, no matter what happens, you
and your family — and the Nation
— will be ready.
FACTS ABOUT "MIKE SHOT"
1. It was a ground test of
thermonuclear device, not a bomb
dropped from the air.
2. It took place at Eniwetok Atoll
in the Pacific in November 1952.
3. The fireball measured 3Vz mile
4. The radius of total destruction
was 3 miles.
5. The radius of heavy to me-
dium damage was 7 miles.
6. The radius of light damage [
was 10 miles.
7. The blast destroyed the tiny
island of Elugelab, leaving a era- j
ter roughly 1 mile in diameter j
and 175 feet deep at the deepest
8. After 12 minutes the cloud was
nearly 20 miles high and 100 miles
9. Some damage from any simi-
of metropolitan New York City .
10 Complete destruction would
cover less than 30 square miles—
1-100,000th of the surface area of
the continental United States.
