Students have been writing articles for K=1 since our inception. We cover everything from nuclear energy to the complicated politics around nuclear weapons.
From documentary to animation, we sponsor movies made by young people - all to raise awareness about nuclear issues. Happy viewing!
The K1 Project, Center for Nuclear studies, has engaged in a total of 3 research expeditions in the Marshall Islands in an attempt to understand the nuclear history in the region and analyze land and ocean contamination from US nuclear weapon testing performed on the islands between 1946 and 1958.
The K1 Project joins the international community in mourning the passing of Tony de Brum, the Pacific nation’s Climate Ambassador and former Foreign Minister of the Marshall Islands, in the Central Pacific.

The United States tested sixty-seven nuclear weapons in the northern Marshall Islands between 1946 and 1958, with devastating consequences for the health and well-being of the island inhabitants. More than seventy years after the first test on Bikini Island, many of the islands remain contaminated. In addition to the fatal consequences of nuclear testing, the Marshall Islands face the consequences of sea level rise, as a result of global warming.
