Greenpeace’s drone crash into nuclear power plant illustrates the danger of nuclear terrorism

Bulletin of Atomic Scientists 3rd Aug 2018 , When a Superman-shaped drone crashed into a French nuclear plant on July 3
of this year, officials were lucky it was just Greenpeace demonstrating
vulnerabilities at the facility, and not a terrorist group intent on
attacking the site.

This incident highlights why the 2010 Nuclear Posture
Review’s assessment that nuclear terrorism is “today’s most immediate
and extreme danger” remains relevant: It underscores the importance of
the sustained and persistent six-year effort from 2010 to 2016 to reduce
the threat posed by nuclear terrorism, far from the headline nuclear issues
of Iran, North Korea, and arms control with Russia.
