When it comes to nuclear weapons, the students of today have less lived experience to draw on than older generations.

Perhaps as a result, these students also have very limited knowledge about nuclear weapons. – Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists Photo: When asked how much they think the US spends each year on its nuclear arsenal, most college students had no idea.
