Physicists study the principles of energy and their action on matter. Their knowledge of physics enable them to help analyze and propose solutions to the environmental problems such as food shortage, pollution, and harmful effects of radiation. It is through their initial efforts that we enjoy the convenience of modern home appliances, ease and safety of travel, the speed of communication, bountiful harvests through mechanized farming, use of laser and ultrasonics in medical diagnosis and therapy, and prosperity in commerce and industry. Thus, PHYSICISTS OPEN UP SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY.

Thirteen of the nation's most prominent physicists have written a letter to President Bush, calling U.S. plans to reportedly use nuclear weapons against Iran "gravely irresponsible" and warning that such action would have "disastrous consequences for the security of the United States and the world."

The letter, which is available at points out that "nuclear weapons are unique among weapons of mass destruction," and that nuclear weapons in today's arsenals have a total power of more than200,000 times the explosive energy of the bomb that leveled Hiroshima, which caused the deaths of more than 100,000 people.
