how did the development of atomic technology affect education,literature and other aspects of daily life in the u.s. during the cold war
Weegy: ?The Cold War (1947-1941) between the US and the USSR led to a competition between the two world superpowers, to reign supreme over the other in all aspects of technology, [ this fueled the need for many advancements in military and computer technology for both sides (CNN, Cold War). Had it not been for this competition, much of our current technology most probably would not be where it is today. The period of several technological military advancements during the Cold War also created the largest arms (both conventional and nuclear) race in history. This race began with the Cold War in 1947 and still continues onward today (The Arms Race). This arms race began when the US was informed that the Nazi's could possibly be developing an atom bomb, if the Nazi's successfully created this weapon of mass destruction (WMD) they would then become unstoppable. The Americans then created the Manhattan Project as a response the Nazi's. To the Nazi's dismay, the US created and tested the first nuclear weapon called the "Trinity" test in July of 1945 (Arms Race). A few weeks after the initial testing of "Trinity", Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan were bombed once each by two American atomic bombs, "Little Boy" and "Fat Man", in response to the attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor. These instances let all know the immense and destructive power of the nuclear bomb The Arms Race). Four years later, on August 9, 1949 the soviets surprised the world by testing an H- Bomb, it was almost completely a product of their own original domestic research, due to the fact that the espionage sources based in the USA had only worked on very early and incorrect versions of the H- Bomb. The development processes were headed by the infamous NKVD (Narodnyi Komissariat Vnutrennikh Del) leader Lavrenty Beria. The USSR's bomb, "Joe 1", was more powerful than both the "Little Boy" and the "Fat Man" (The Arms Race). A good portion of the technology that we now enjoy today may have not been ... (More)

how did the development of atomic technology affect education,literature, and other aspects of daily life in the u.s. during the cold war?
Weegy: The development moved the society in the united states into a new era. One that had more energy but at the same time frightening weapons and a big question mark regarding safety issues. [ We can see many writings referring to the possibility of an atomic war after which the world changes drastically. "Alas Babylon" by Pat Frank is a great example of how the nuclear age got Americans thinking about possible apocalypses. On the Energy front, there was a lot of worrying about the safety hazards of nuclear energy. It took time but today, besides all the thought put in to stopping pollution, using atomic energy is widely accepted. I think that when the Americans used the bomb something fundamental changed. For the first time it was clear that man could destroy this world. This realization caused America to try and stop these weapons from spreading and we can see today that a lot of the foreign affairs diplomacy is prescribed by that purpose. ] (More)
