And thus, the age of the bloated military industrial complex began.

At 1:08, those three structures are cages. Each one has a live pig inside it. The purpose of this was to test the bomb's thermal effects on exposed flesh.

verdict: Delicious!

MrBuddy
Trinity And Beyond showed the nice version and I don't remember it telling you the details of what was happening. The anti-nuclear movie Dark Circle showed the really nauseating version, although Dark Circle played fast and loose with "facts" (i.e. didn't do any checking and just make stuff up), the video is undeniable.

RockBolt
Dark Circle worth seeing? I hate poorly researched propaganda documentaries, but if it has some decent rare footage I should probably hunt it down

MrBuddy
RockBolt: If you're looking for rare footage of nuclear power plants and nuclear weapon making then Dark Circle has a ton of it. It's not a movie for general audiences like "Trinity and Beyond" is but if you're a nuclear nerd it will hold your attention to say the least.

The movie mostly focuses on Rocky Flats, America's troubled, atomic bomb, recycling pant, which was torn down a few years ago. As long as you prepare yourself to see some disturbing stuff, you'll be alright. I had no idea what I was about to watch and it was like being kicked in the nuts, but the next time I saw it I was fine. Some of the "facts" are exaggerated to the point they no longer reference reality, some facts skip over other important facts (like the nuclear a reactor that was intentionally blown up, was later put back together and continued running) and there is mention a reactor that was blown up however there's no record of such a test taking place. The problem is some of the wild things the movie tells you are 100%, verifiably true and it's almost impossible to know which is which.

RockBolt
Good old Rocky Flats, yeah I live in Denver. Sounds like its worth tracking down, thanks for the info!

The Mothership
This version is slightly longer, but still a dupe.

If only these tests could be resumed solely to be recorded with modern cameras.
fedex
i have thought that on numerous occasions

animegurl1000
Same here.

EvilHomer
40,000 FPS camera on a 72" HD TV? I'm willing to risk nuclear annihilation to see that.

RockBolt
Its not annihilation, its slow lingering cancer that persist for decades. Half the country was bathed in fallout for decades because of this shit

For instance, my father got the equivalent of 1000-2000 extra chest x-rays while living in Denver, 650 miles from the Nevada Test Site

GravidWithHate
Weren't there some interesting blast effects caused by the fact that the bomb detonated while moving at high speed?
MrBuddy
Yes.

The flash heated dark areas like roads so that when the shock wave traveled along them it could move much faster do to less resistance. This was called a precursor wave and they would tear the turrets and tracks off of tanks and throw jeeps hundreds of yards down the blast line.

Jet Bin Fever
5 for absolute evil.
RockBolt
Atomic Annie. Only slightly less ridiculous than the Davy Crockett nuclear recoilless rife, and the plowshare program that used underground nuclear detonation for natural gas fracking.

Also needs a "trinity and beyond" tag
