On March 23, 1983, President Ronald Reagan delivered a nationally televised speech in which he argued that the nation needed to update and increase its nuclear arsenal to ensure its safety against the Soviet Union. The centerpiece of his plan was the Strategic Defense Initiative, a theoretical system that would allow the U.S. military to shoot down an incoming Soviet missile. Critics dubbed the program "Star Wars" and argued that the costly plan would not be technologically possible.
