Nuclear Dangers: A Zoom Discussion with Prof. Martin E. Hellman and Prof. Benôit Pélopidas
Professors Martin E. Hellman and Benoît Pelopidas will discuss the case for why luck can not be a viable strategy when it comes to the use of nuclear weapons. They will consider the very concept of luck and what it truly means, the evidence of its role in the past, how current doctrines are relying on it today, and what that means for the Ukraine War. Says Prof. Hellman, “Those who discount the risk of the Ukraine War leading to a nuclear war are probably right, but probably is not an adequate assurance when our nation’s survival is at stake.” Join us for what promises to be a provocative discussion.
