    Operation HARDTACK I consisted of 35 nuclear tests conducted at the Pacific Proving Ground between April 28 and August 18, 1958. These tests included balloon, surface, barge, underwater, and rocket-borne high-altitude tests. The first test, Yucca, was a nuclear device attached to a helium balloon launched from the USS Boxer near Enewetak Atoll. HARDTACK I consisted of three portions; the first was the development of nuclear weapons. This was a continuation of the type of testing conducted at Enewetak and Bikini during the early and mid-1950s. In these tests, the weapons development laboratories, Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory and the University of California Radiation Laboratory (later named Lawrence-Livermore National Laboratory), detonated their experimental devices, while the Departm...

Operation HARDTACK I consisted of 35 nuclear tests conducted at the Pacific Proving Ground between April 28 and August 18, 1958. These tests included balloon, surface, barge, underwater, and rocket-borne high-altitude tests. The first test, Yucca, was a nuclear device attached to a helium balloon launched from the USS Boxer near Enewetak Atoll. HARDTACK I consisted of three portions; the first was the development of nuclear weapons. This was a continuation of the type of testing conducted at Enewetak and Bikini during the early and mid-1950s. In these tests, the weapons development laboratories, Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory and the University of California Radiation Laboratory (later named Lawrence-Livermore National Laboratory), detonated their experimental devices, while the Department of Defense (DoD) provided support and conducted experiments that did not interfere with Atomic Energy Commission activities. The second portion, sponsored by the DoD, consisted of the underwater tests Wahoo and Umbrella. Wahoo was detonated in the deep, open ocean southwest of Boken Island, and Umbrella inside the western end of the lagoon at Enewetak. The purpose of these tests was to improve the understanding of the effects of underwater explosions on Navy ships and material. These were continuations of earlier underwater testing that included Baker in CROSSROADS at Bikini in 1946 and WIGWAM off the U.S. West Coast in 1955. The DoD also sponsored the third portion, addressing the military problems of air-borne nuclear weapon defense. Three high-altitude tests featured rocket-borne Teak and Orange at Johnston Island and balloon-hoisted Yucca between Enewetak and Bikini. Two major aspects of HARDTACK I's experimental program were the development of the weapons themselves and the measurement of the explosive and radiation effects. Also, since the development of a nuclear armed fleet ballistic missile was on a fast track, a portion of HARDTACK I was devoted to testing the warhead for the Polaris missile. The tests comprising the 1958 Operation HARDTACK I were as follows: YUCCA, April 28, Pacific (between Enewetak and Bikini), balloon, weapons effects, 1.7 kilotons (kt) CACTUS, May 5, Enewetak, surface, weapons related, 18 kt FIR, May 11, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 1.36 megatons (Mt) BUTTERNUT, May 11, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 81 kt KOA, May 12, Enewetak, surface, weapons related, l.37 Mt WAHOO, May 16, near Enewetak, underwater, weapons effects, 9 kt HOLLY, May 20, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 5.9 kt NUTMEG, May 21, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 25.1 kt YELLOWWOOD, May 26, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 330 kt MAGNOLIA, May 26, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 57 kt TOBACCO, May 30, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 11.6 kt SYCAMORE, May 31, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 92 kt ROSE, June 2, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 15 kt UMBRELLA, June 8, near Enewetak, underwater, weapons effects, 8 kt MAPLE, June 10, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 213 kt ASPEN, June 14, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 319 kt WALNUT, June 14, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 1.45 Mt LINDEN, June 18, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 11 kt REDWOOD, June 27, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 412 kt ELDER, June 27, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 880 kt OAK, June 28, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 8.9 Mt HICKORY, June 29, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 14 kt SEQUOIA, July 1, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 5.2 kt CEDAR, July 2, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 220 kt DOGWOOD, July 5, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 397 kt POPLAR, July 12, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 9.3 Mt SCAEVOLA, July 14, near Enewetak, barge, safety experiment, zero yield PISONIA, July 17, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 255 kt JUNIPER, July 22, near Bikini, barge, weapons related, 65 kt OLIVE, July 22, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 202 kt PINE, July 26, near Enewetak, barge, weapons related, 2 Mt TEAK, August 1, off Johnston Island area, rocket, weapons effects, 3.8 Mt QUINCE, August 6, Enewetak, surface, weapons related, zero yield ORANGE, August 12, off Johnston Island area, rocket, weapons effects, 3.8 Mt FIG, August 18, Enewetak, surface, weapons related, 20 tons

Multifunctional complexes and sustainable resorts located out on the Sea and networked with their Cities We have devised systems that will serve as urban landmarks. They will work as recycling water plants, renewable energy power plants (solar, wind, tidal, bio-gas and geothermal), marine biology laboratories, and as inhabitable sculptures! The pride of their citizens. When thinking about the way societies and cities would grow in the future, the exploitation of resources and contamination of land, air and water will be the major factors determining if they could develop organized, responsible and positive or chaotic destructive and threatened. The greatest problems could be first mitigated and then solved by restructuring the way cities work: 1. The centralized provision of basic needs. It has to be helped by other providers, locally, decentralized! 2. The energy crisis, dependency on fossil fuels, contamination, expansion of landfills, depletion of groundwater tables and potable water contamination! 3. The wasteful and irresponsible behavior. We have to set the example that the opposite is possible, profitable and enjoyable! 4. The pollution of coastal cities. We must clean them! 5. very little is done to repair what has already been damaged! 6. The increase and misuse of land occupation. We have to find our home-place somewhere else, in the sea! Our solution: The first residential, commercial and Eco-tourism luxury resorts in an Eco-energy power farm and water recycling plant standing on a marine platform complex! Inspired by the City of Cancun, the capital of tourism in the Mayan Riviera -which in the year 2020 will celebrate its 50th founding anniversary-, a complex was conceived adapting the meaning of "kaan kun" (Nest of Snakes) and the magical legend of the Mayan Serpent God in its design. This Eco-platform was called "Grand Cancun" and condensed all ideas on self-sustainability explored in several projects and lectures. The Grand Cancun was conceived from the core to fight global warming (i.e. CO2 emissions). The systems on it contribute to the environment. resets urbanism towards the new clean metropolis, projecting the pride of a "sense of purpose" on its residents, amplifying the interest of its visitors and serving as a platform for business and finance, including luxury Eco-tourism. The standard Offshore Eco-Platform will be a mega-building, an offshore city standing on stilts where hotels, shopping malls, convention-congress centers, cinemas and loads more will provide all the needs and experiences available in a small city, while being totally self-sufficient, having a zero-carbon-footprint, and providing the surrounding land community with drinking water and energy from renewable resources! But the most interesting thing is that it will clean the seas! The shape of the building, its waterfront, and the coastal line will direct water right through waste collectors for floating solids and hydrocarbons. The water will be also nourished and purified to increase marine life. Above the water everything is planned to care for the environment, and about motivating people to share the responsibility. Grand Cancun will generate surplus of clean, local renewable energy and alleviate to some extend the city's energy needs. Solar panels will cover most of light-facing areas, including see-through photovoltaic polymers on transparent surfaces. Every residential block on the tower will have vertical wind turbines and solar panels.. There are also underwater energy collectors of tidal and wave energy, Geothermal energy collectors according to location, and waste-to-biogas power plants by anaerobic digestion. The lower level of the platforms would hold all the power plants and energy storage systems. Like all existing oil platforms, the project would contain large desalination plants producing drinking water for all the users of the complex and some for the community. All rainwater will be collected and reused. Wastewater is not wasted! It will be recycled, purified and reused for gardens. Here there is a chance to study and monitor the marine development of the Eco-platforms by installing marine biology laboratories and environmental studies/sustainable energy university departments. When this new green architecture gets built, it will reset around the globe the standards about what is possible and ideal as a resort, and will change the way we see our cities forever. The best of the idea is that eventually his building concept will be replicated in such a scale that the return to pristine clean beaches will definitively be there for our grandchildren to enjoy. The feasibility of the platforms is enormous considering the many different types of platforms and mooring available now, prepared to take any environmental conditions in all geographical locations, including eventually some far in the middle of the oceans, cleaning, protecting, generating. The ultimate stewards of the seas!

SINGAPORE: The new S$75 million Keppel-NUS Corporate Laboratory was launched in Singapore on Monday. One of its research aims is to develop technological solutions to meet the challenges of oil and gas exploration and production in harsh environments like the Arctic. It is the second corporate laboratory launched under a scheme by the National Research Foundation to enhance collaboration between universities and industries. The first - the Rolls-Royce@NTU Corporate Lab - was launched in July 2013. The Keppel-NUS Corporate Lab is the first involving a local company. The Arctic is rich in petroleum and mineral resources. But it is also a harsh environment where temperatures can dip to as low as minus 60 degrees. Getting to these resources is a challenge that can hopefully be overcome through more focused research efforts. Michael Chia, managing director (Marine and Technology) at Keppel Offshore & Marine, said: "It is an area where not a lot of experience has been gained so far. And ice is something which is quite unpredictable, especially even more so now with climate change... So we need to look at those instances whereby we can develop our structures to be able to sustain that kind of different environmental conditions." Currently, Keppel has icebreaker vessels operating in the Arctic, but it wants to build rigs that can operate there as well. It hopes to deploy arctic jack-up drilling rigs there by 2020. The Keppel-NUS Corporate Laboratory signifies deeper collaboration and synergy between industry and academia. This means that Keppel can bring industry-related challenges to the table to see if researchers can come up with solutions to them. For researchers it is also an opportunity for them to suss out how commercially viable their projects are. Other research areas at the new lab include refining current deepwater technology for oil and gas exploration and production, developing competencies to explore and exploit mineral resources in deep oceans in an environmentally-friendly way, and increasing productivity while reducing reliance on manpower in some shipyard activities such as welding, painting and operations in confined spaces. Professor Low Teck Seng, CEO of the National Research Foundation, said: "I think what is important for us in Singapore is to make sure the investments we have made in research and development get translated so that there is accrued benefit to Singapore and Singaporeans. "So this aspect of translation can only be effected if you bring companies together with our research performers, the universities and research institutes. So having this Keppel corporate lab in NUS is a very pro-active approach in seeing how we can actually catalyse and accelerate translation of technologies in a very important area for us, because Keppel is number one in certain areas of technology in the marine-offshore space." Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said at the launch that the new lab will add vibrancy to the marine and offshore industry in Singapore. Mr Teo, who is also chairman of the National Research Foundation, said: "We hope the Keppel-NUS collaboration will encourage other local companies to forge strategic alliances with our research performers, to do future-oriented, practical research that creates economic value for Singapore and good jobs for Singaporeans." The partnership between Keppel Corporation and NUS will involve 44 principal investigators, co-principal investigators and external collaborators. It will also create 54 new positions for research fellows and engineers and train some 30 PhD and Masters students in five years. Today, Singapore's marine and offshore industry contributes S$13 billion, or 1.6 per cent, to the gross domestic product, and hires some 20,000 Singaporeans and permanent residents, mainly in skilled jobs. The new lab will be based at the NUS Faculty of Engineering. www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/new-corporate-laboratory/899122.html

One of only two in the world, a high capacity and full-size panel tester was established at the University of Houston's Thomas T.C. Hsu Structural Research Laboratory in 1988. The University Element Tester puts elements cut out from large structures, such as shear walls, bridges, shell roofs, nuclear containment structures and concrete offshore platforms through large loads of pressure, simulating natural disasters. The lab uses the information to improve the construction and design of everything from high rises to bridges.
