NH #677 – OBSCENE Atomic Museum Shows No Bomb Victims, No Downwinders, Just Nuclear “FUN”<!!!>

Compare and Contrast: Picture of what the bombing of Hiroshima looked like to this one infant vs. logo outside the Atomic Museum in Las Vegas, promising all kinds of radioactive, life-destroying fun!

This Week’s Featured Interview:

  • Sometimes one has to go into the belly of the beast. While in Las Vegas for the closing two days of the International Uranium Film Festival, I visited the Atomic Museum, which is dedicated to preserving the history of the Nevada Test Site (now known as the Nevada Nevada National Security Site). I interviewed the museum’s Deputy Director and Curator Joseph Kent, an historian who has risen through the ranks of the museum since joining it full time in 2019. Here is our interview, recorded on May 1, 2024.
  • Linda Lovon – An activist attending the International Uranium Film Festival from Hawaii, with her brief thoughts on the museum.

Links to Fill In the Atomic Museum’s Blanks:

I urge everyone – especially those who work with the Atomic Museum – to view the following films to fill in the blanks in the “story” told by the Atomic Museum:

  • DOWNWIND – Award-winning documentary on every aspect of the Downwinder situation. Available on Amazon Prime. Filmmakers: Douglas Brian Miller, Mark Shapiro
  • ATOMIC COVER-UP – The earliest on-the-ground footage of the atomic aftermath of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, with audio from the cameramen who shot the film. This material was classified TOP SECRET for decades. Filmmaker: Greg Mitchell. Available on PBS.
  • TIME BOMBS – The story of 40 young Canadian soldiers sent to Nevada to be used as guinea pigs when the American military wanted to know how the average soldier would hold up on a nuclear battlefield. Filmmakers: Guylaine Maroist, Eric Ruel
