The Beat on WMDD

Welcome to Atomic Pulse!

By now you may have noticed that the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) has a new blog: Atomic Pulse: The Beat on WMDD from NTI. We’re excited to use this new platform to supplement the research, analysis and project updates on our website. How? By bringing you behind-the-scenes stories (like Andrew Bieniawski on removing highly enriched uranium from Poland). By helping you get to know our staff. By letting you know about interesting books, movies and events. By connecting our work to what’s happening in the news.

If you’re not familiar with NTI, we are a non-profit, non-partisan organization, founded by former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn and philanthropist Ted Turner to work to prevent catastrophic attacks with weapons of mass destruction and disruption (WMDD) – specifically nuclear, biological, radiological, chemical, and cyber.

We know you have a lot competing for your attention, from the U.S. presidential contest to the tragedy in Aleppo. We hope Atomic Pulse will help you learn more about the most important WMDD security issues facing our leaders – and we hope it will encourage you to get involved.

We invite you to share ideas and send feedback to NTI Senior Director for Content and Atomic Pulse editor Mimi Hall at Please remember to put “Atomic Pulse” in the subject line.

 Thank you for reading!
