With so much talk nowadays about an atomic Iran and atomic North Korea and the recent weapons test over there, it is is interesting to look at some of our own historic nuclear tests to see how they were done – and to get an understanding of how devastatingly powerful a nuclear bomb – exploded aboveground – really is.

The government has a huge archive of early atomic weapon film clips – including the very famous Able and Baker atomic blasts. There are small clips of each film available on the site and videos of the entirety of each test can be purchased for a very reasonable sum.
