    You've already touched on an answer to this in your first post. For instance, what's a bad thing about nuclear bombs? If you would read the information you've been given (especially the last link), you might be able to understand what Astronuc's getting at. THINK about it, don't just give up and wait for someone to hand the answer to you. You need to learn how to research a topic effectively.
