Join the Special Nuclear Weapons Disarmament Air Force

Always wanted to be a dove with the magical power to disarm an entire nation of their nuclear weapons in one foul swoop? You and me both.

The Nobel Foundation has put out an educational game on nuclear weapons proliferation that allows you to send eight “peace doves” to disarm each of the eight countries possessing nuclear weapons. (Presumably, the game was finalized before North Korea tested a nuclear weapon last October making it country number nine.) The catch is that each dove is assigned to a specific country and you need to correctly identify which country the dove should disarm based on information about that country’s nuclear arsenal.

Sounds like a good time, right? Well, give it a shot by clicking here.
