At 5:29:21 AM on July 16, 1945, the “Gadget” implosion plutonium nuclear device was detonated, unleashing for the first time the nuclear fire upon the earth. 70 years later, we still struggle with the issues of nuclear warfare and proliferation.

  1. I don’t think there is anything more awesome than atomic and/or thermonuclear detonations. Mean that in the big way, not surfer “awesome”. Simply mesmerizing to watch.

  2. If you ever want to get the chills, google earth about 80 miles north of Vegas and look at all the holes from detonations. It is frightening how many there are!
