    This is a great video from the documentary "Trinity and Beyond".

    The vertical smoke lines are rocket trails set just before the explosion. It makes it easy to visualize the shockwaves.

    I'm debating on the version with the Pipboy. :facepalm:

    When I was in Ukraine I visited former Soviet missile site that once housed nukes that were pointed at the US. It was pretty fucking awesome.

    AWESOME!! I wish we would fire off a few occasionally, like out in the desert. I'd love to see one.

    This is cool. Every nuclear explosion that ever was. I always knew they had denoted a lot of them out in the desert but I had no idea there were so many! And they denoted one in Louisiana which I never knew.

    It's insane to watch that documentary. They had zero idea what the effects would be, but stuck soldiers out there like guinea pigs.

    The movie shows soldiers swallowing radiation detectors that were attached to string. That allowed them to be pulled back out and studied after the exposure to the blast.

    The scariest crap is the stuff we WANTED to do but never did. :scared:
