Nuclear Test
#1
So these guys were told to stand at ground zero while a 2 kiloton
weapon was set off 10,00 feet over their heads.
This article appeared on Foxnews.com.
You first see their reaction to the flash then followed by the
shock wave.

Back during the H-bomb testing at Bikini Atoll, the Navy did something kind of similar. Now the survivors have all sorts of crazy cancers.

The article mentioned all six developed some form of cancer and four died as a result.
I assume number six was the photographer.
This was a demonstration to show nuclear weapons were safe to use near a civilian
population. ???

I wonder if they got any danger pay for doing that or if the army at least looked after them when they got sick.

What amazes me is we had the technology back then, check the jets,
to put a nuclear weapon in something the size of an air to air
missile. What do we have now??

I like how the government blames us for holes in the ozone layer with all our aerosols and emissions...what effect do you think all these aerial nuke blasts have on the ozone? I once saw a map that showed where the biggest ozone holes were and they corresponded with nuclear testy sites all over the globe! Hmmmm...imagine that!
