The Testing of Nuclear weapons

From the end of the Second World War to the present date nuclear waeapons have been tested throughout the globe (and if this video is accurate in many of the same places!).

The powerful status of being a country that holds and develops nuclear tests cannot be understated.
In contemporary times there are arguments (and finance) to extend the nuclear weapons and testing programs into the realms of outer space.
1. what are your views?
2. Now we understand more of the implications (health, welfare, dangers etc) and the science of nuclear power and energy should we be developing this on an universal basis?
3. Which organisations regulate, check, licence and agree on the use of nuclear tests internationally? Does everyone and all countries comply with the rules? Give examples.
