Tactical Nuclear Weapon
A tactical nuclear weapon (TNW) or non-strategic nuclear weapon[1] is a nuclear weapon, generally smaller in its explosive power, which is designed to be used on a battlefield in military situations, mostly with friendly forces in proximity and perhaps even on contested friendly territory. This is contrast to strategic nuclear weapons which are designed to be mostly targeted in the enemy interior away from the war front against military bases, cities, towns, arms industries, and other hardened or larger-area targets to damage the enemy's ability to wage war

Weather Balloon
A weather or sounding balloon is a balloon (specifically a type of high-altitude balloon) which carries instruments aloft to send back information on atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity and wind speed by means of a small, expendable measuring device called a radiosonde. To obtain wind data, they can be tracked by radar, radio direction finding, or navigation systems (such as the satellite-based Global Positioning System, GPS). Balloons meant to stay at a constant altitude for long periods of time are known as transosondes.Contents1 History 2 Materials and equipment 3 Launch time, location, and uses 4 See also 5 References 6 External linksHistory[edit] One of the first people to use weather balloons was Léon Teisserenc de Bort, the French meteorologist

Project Genetrix
Project Genetrix, also known as WS-119L, was a United States Air Force program designed to launch General Mills
General Mills
manufactured surveillance balloons[1][2] over Communist China, Eastern Europe
Eastern Europe
and the Soviet Union to take aerial photographs and collect intelligence. The Genetrix balloons reached altitudes of 50,000–100,000 feet (15–30 km), well above that flown by contemporary fighter planes. In 1955 a number of AN/DMQ-1 gondolas were launched from Lowry Air Force Base in Colorado as a test of the system. One was recovered years later in New Brunswick.[3] Between 10 January and 6 February 1956, a total of 516 high-altitude vehicles were launched from the five different launch sites Gardermoen, Norway; Evanton, Scotland; Oberpfaffenhofen and Giebelstadt, West Germany; and Incirlik, Turkey; [4][5] 54 were recovered and only 31 provided usable photographs
