A Brief History

Today, July 23, 2021, we remember the dangerous era known as the Cold War.

Digging Deeper

This playlist presents a collaboration between 20+ channels, all on Cold War history and science.

The preceding videos have covered just some aspects of the Cold War.  It is our hope that through education, we can help prevent such terrifying episodes from occurring again.  Question for students (and subscribers): What can be done today to eliminate the threat of nuclear war?  Please let us know in the comments section below this article.
