Nuclear weapons could very well be responsible for the end of civilization, as we know it. Developed during World War 2 in a race against Germans and their believed superior technology, we wish today that the Manhattan Project had been abandoned immediately following the discovery that Germany had failed in their attempt. Although nuclear weapons have successfully accomplished their goal of mass destruction, they have failed as a science or technology to positively contribute towards, or benefit, society.
