AIR DATE: January 13, 2010

The bomb has been around for nearly 65 years. But it only became a factor in defense thinking after it had ended World War Two in the Pacific with the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

They will be participating in a panel discussion at the Atomic Testing Museum tonight.
