Review for FEDERATION OF AMERICAN SCIENTISTS, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The FAS has been a significant force in maintaining awareness of the potentially catastrophic misuse of nuclear weapons by governments or terrorists. It has maintained communications with scientists all over the world, even when diplomatic relations are difficult. More reecently, efforts have expanded to other WMD, specifically the control of potential bio-weapons. Because of the diverse expertise of its members, FAS has also supported advanced research in applying digital technology to science education, and applying science to the development of superior low cost construction materials for housing. While the goal of eliminating nuclear weapons has not yet been achieved, FAS has been instrumental in convincing governments not to use nuclear weapons in conflict situations.
