Today in 1955: Albert Einstein, Bertrand Russell and nine other scientists warn that the development of weapons of mass destruction had created a choice between war and survival of the human species.
The Russell-Einstein Manifesto was published in London and became the basis for the Pugwash Conference of scientists two years later.
