The Miller Map. The path radioactive fallout took from the 100 above-ground nuclear tests in Nevada. Actually, it took three or more nuclear fallout clouds overhead to make it onto this map. Compiled by Richard Miller, author of Under the Cloud: The Decades of Nuclear Testing.

  • Mary Dickson is a Salt Lake City journalist and writer whose award-winning play, Exposed, puts a human face on the cost of nuclear testing. She has been recognized by the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility for her lifetime work on behalf of downwinders and regularly speaks out against the resumption of nuclear testing as well as her downwinder information talks.  We talk about the horrific price paid by those who were downwind of the atmospheric atomic bomb tests of the 1950’s and 60’s… and the ongoing legacy of those blasts.
