MAPW Fact Sheet: Nuclear ship visits to Australia, 2009

This two-page fact sheet covers the history of nuclear powered and nuclear-armed ships to Australia, as well as detailing the hazards to health and to the environment which nuclear ship visits bring. The fact sheet lists examples of nuclear incidents, both accidental and intentional, involving nuclear weapons; and nuclear-powered and nuclear-armed vessels — both surface ships and submarines. Prepared by MAPW Vice President Dr Bill Williams, in June 2009.
