Infrasound Detection of North Korea's Launch

Bharath Gopalaswamy, Proliferation Analysis
DPRKOn April 5, 2009, North Korea launched what it claimed was a rocket bearing a satellite. We carried out an investigation to detect the launch using the infrasound component of the International Monitoring System (IMS) set up to verify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT). This demonstrates that infrasound monitoring is useful not only in the detection of nuclear tests, but also in the verification of other nonproliferation-related agreements.

Obama Could Send Message to Iran With...a Message to Iran

Vartan Gregorian, US News and World Report
Editor's Note: Vartan Gregorian, President of the Carnegie Corporation, has written a model letter that President Obama could send to Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei and President Ahmadinejad. Beyond its exceptional grace and erudition, this letter aptly contextualizes the nuclear issue. It deserves to be widely read.
