Nuclear missile arming code was 00000000

quote:

Today I found out that during the height of the Cold War, the US military put such an emphasis on a rapid response to an attack on American soil, that to minimize any foreseeable delay in launching a nuclear missile, for nearly two decades they intentionally set the launch codes at every silo in the US to 8 zeroes.

In Soviet Russia, missiles take nine zeros to launch. Suck it capitalist pigs.

My dad was stationed in one of those bunkers. I will verify this. (unless it was in one of those break open card thingys that no one ever had to really use)

Well, the final destruct sequence for the Enterprise was "000 Destruct 0".

It's kind of clever. I don't think too many people would have tried a string of zeroes if they were going after a high security target.
