    The history of nuclear testing began early on the morning of 16 July at a desert test site in Alamogordo, New Mexico when the United States exploded its first atomic bomb. ASME Nuclear Quality Assurance (NQA-1) is a national consensus standard for quality assurance in the nuclear industry. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) established the standard as the means to ensure compliance with the requirements of the nuclear industry.

    While the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty included a statement of intent to work towards the total ending of nuclear testing, it was not until the competition of the Cold War effectively ended and after the START Treaties between the United States and the U.S.S.R. were signed that a total moratorium became feasible. Since the founding of the National Security Archive, nuclear crises, nuclear proliferation, and the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. policy have been central to its FOIA requesting. The overwhelming importance of the problem of nuclear weapons has posed an existential threat since the early years of the Cold War and has made this an essential focus.

    Trinity was the code name of the first successful nuclear test. The test name was chosen by J. Robert Oppenheimer, the director of the Manhattan Project, in reference to a poem by John Donne. The Trinity test was conducted by the United States Army at a.m. on J Suns by Michael Light Book Description: Between July and November the United States is known to have conducted atmospheric and underwater nuclear tests. After the Limited Test Ban Treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union in , nuclear testing went underground.
