Soviet scientists and three visiting U.S. congressmen witnessed a chemical explosion designed to show how modern technology can detect nuclear blasts, Tass reported. The 10-ton non-nuclear explosion in a remote area of the Soviet republic of Kazakhstan was aimed at proving that seismic equipment can reveal even the smallest nuclear explosion, the news agency said. The group today will check detection of the blast at seismic stations up to 390 miles away.
