Default Nuclear Detonations 1945-1998

A video I found on nuclear detonations from 1945 to 1998. It shows the month and year of each detonation in the upper right corner. Scary stuff!!
How many "nukes" do you think have gone off???

...... I suffer from a very rare genetic defect that causes me to be sympathetic toward the International cause. There is no cure.

Thats very interesting....
So much for the popular idea that: if 50 nukes go off in a very short timespan it would cause nuclear winter, haha at propaganda.

God created men. John Moses Browning made them equal.

Now wouldn't it have been more productive to have just set all of those off in the middle east, preferably at one time.

Don't know for sure exact number of test detonations but they did detonate alot of them in the 1950's above ground the next state over from here and continued with underground detonations through the 1960's or so. My favorite detonation was Test Shot Grable.
