NH #21: Animation of Nuclear Bomb Blasts, 1945 – 1998

A clearly animated representation of how many blasts we’ve had since the first ones in 1945.  Remember, each blast releases radiation into the atmosphere and/or the ground, where it remains until a minimum of ten half-life cycles are completed.  None of us will outlive the radiational pollution of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, let alone the domestic “dirty bombs” of Fukushima, Chernobyl and Three Mile Island.
