By Special to the Monitor

The National Nuclear Security Administration announced that Pollux, a subcritical experiment, was successfully conducted last week at its Nevada National Security Site.

The experiment, conducted by staff from NNSS, Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories, gathered scientific data that will provide crucial information to maintain the safety and effectiveness of the nation’s nuclear weapons.

“Challenging subcritical experiments maintain our capabilities to ensure that we can support a safe, secure and effective stockpile without having to conduct underground testing,”NNSA Administrator Thomas D’Agostino said. “I applaud the work done by the men and women who worked to make this experiment successful. Experiments such as this help deliver President Obama’s nuclear security agenda.”

According to the news website Xinhua, Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui condemned the United States for conducting a subcritical nuclear test at an underground test site in Nevada.
