    Why did I stop fricking your mom? Because the process was well understood by that point and nothing new could be expected to be observed, so it became unnecessary.

      That's because you're working with a little bomb. When I hit OP's mom with the big bomb she made noises I've never heard from a human before, or after.

    After a certain point, it’s nothing but dick-swinging because you know the results. France kept doing them after others stopped, and it just made them look like the tries-too-hard-to-look-tough manlet among other nuclear states.

      Global atmospheric test ban treaties, they still do underground tests sometimes

      Every bomb test after the first is political and the political landscape made tests politically untenable.

      Friendly reminder that it has been a quarter century since anyone has proven a nuclear capability besides North Korea and that they have proven it seven times.

      Everyone got together and signed a global moratorium.

      Underground testing has been banned by all signatories albeit the US hasn't ratified it yet. Nobody has done any nuclear tests since 1998 besides the Norks.

    They evolved into something better than just a big bang. They still test explosive fission powered devices. They're not bombs though. You'll see in WW3. Unless you get hit.

      They developed new ICBMs and the new b61-12 nuclear bomb. Not testing them seems kinda moronic though. Just "lol, hope this works" kind of thing. Even if you think the science is spot on there's really only one way to find out if it actually works.

    Because they are fake and gay. The computer-simulations-are-more-precise cope is also fake and gay. In every branch of advanced engineering real life tests are still used in this day and age because you still can't simulate reality good enough. See wind tunnels or wave tanks.

      >See wind tunnels
      Yeah, if you only use one type of tunnel with limited temps, densities, and Reynolds numbers. If you use many type of tunnels and combine your results, the predictions match real life tests pretty well. This has been known since the US reentery vehicle tests of the 60s.

      Relying on untested weapons is just plain moronic. Especially something as complex as a new ICBM with multiple nuclear warheads. Though I think the only new nuke the US has is gravity based and developed to be carried by stealth planes. It's still untested though.

    Russia has tried many times in very recent history to detonate nuclear warheads, all of which failed, so much so that it is likely a good educated guess that the 'West' has 90% of the operational nuclear munitions. You need like a division's worth of graduate-level engineers to sustain thousands of warheads and delivery systems, which given the smaller population, prewar emigration, deeply entrenched corruption and the mass "GTFO" of intellectual resources that occurred after Russia invaded Ukraine has made it non-operational.

    there hasnt been any new development for nuclear bombs since the 50s. No need to test anything

    • 2 weeks ago

      There is a new us icbmthat was recently developed and being tested. Though it's using old nuclear warheads that are being retrofitted. It's known that the she of the bombs might have failing components in them. They can test the delivery vehicle but the bombs themselves could have all kinds of problems.

      Is just dumb to rely on old weapons and prayer. If you were given a 50 year old cow sidearm wouldn't you want to test it to make sure it still works in case you need to use it?

          Their service life is just being extended but they are still old. When you buy a refurbished electronic device you test it to make sure your changes actually fixed any problems. These nukes are being changed and refurbished without being tested.

              If in given a bunch of old ammon would probably test it to see if it works. Whether it was stored properly or tampered with. And if someone developed a new primer for my ammo I would want to make sure it works to set off the powder correctly.

              The simulations on super computers do all of that for you now, and are quite accurate from all of the mountains of test data the US is able to feed it.

              Still doesn't beat real world testing. You might have tons of data but you could be missing something or implementing it incorrectly.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      > better
      The simulation can't run every variable because it doesn't have every variable as a real world test would. They aren't running the Matrix on these computers, the simulations don't come close to real life.
      >less expensive
      The super computer used cost $500million dollars and costs $7million a year to operate. A single b61-12 cost $4million.
      >quicker
      A nuclear bomb takes a few nanoseconds to detonate. I'm assuming a simulation takes longer than that.

      You can run a million simulations but they will never be more accurate or cheaper than just detonating a real bomb to test.
