There are eight sovereign states that have successfully detonated nuclear weapons. Five are considered to be "nuclear-weapon states" (NWS) under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). In order of acquisition of nuclear weapons these are: the United States, the Russian Federation (successor state to the Soviet Union), the United Kingdom, France, and China. Nations that are known or believed to possess nuclear weapons are sometimes referred to as "the nuclear club."and
Yucca Flat was the site for 739 nuclear tests – nearly four of every five tests carried out at the NTS. Yucca Flat has been called "the most irradiated, nuclear-blasted spot on the face of the earth".Related video:
