“Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinity” test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear).”
Image of the only nuke ever detonated in space: What does it look like when you blow up a nuke in space? It’s only happened once, in 1962, but newly declassified images shows exactly what happened.
Why, pray tell, did the government want to launch nukes into space? Well, apparently they wanted to test a few theories. (via DVICE.)
Thanks to Roger Ebert’s Twitter feed for bringing this to my attention…
