    The Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty signed by the United States, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain in stopped the testing of nuclear weapons in all locations except "on land", since it was mainly to prevent this testing from taking place in space or the atmosphere. The Limited Test Ban Treaty had already eliminated nuclear testing in the atmosphere, underwater and in outer space. The United States wants to avoid a costly and dangerous arms race with Russia and China. A return to nuclear test explosions would certainly set this off.
