A Very Interesting Video: Tracking The 2053 Nuclear Bombings And Tests Around The World From 1945-1998 (Except Israel's Tests, Of Course!)
I came across this very interesting video about a month ago, and I decided to put it up here for my own readers to view. It shows all of the nuclear tests (and atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki), except Israel's clandestine testing, from 1945 to 1998. Here is that video:
NTS Notes: One important test that is missing from this video is the joint South African-Israeli Nuclear bomb test off of the island of Prince Edward in the south Indian Ocean in 1979. That test was detected by an American VELA spy satellite, but was covered up for years as being either a meteorite strike or a malfunction in the VELA satellite's own cameras. Only now do we know that the Israelis and the South Africans worked clandestinely during the 1970's through the 1980's on a secretive nuclear weapons program, and test fired one of their developed nukes in 1979.
It is amazing to see how much we have actually done to ourselves on this planet during that time frame in testing nuclear bombs. I can hardly wait for an updated version of this video that will include the Israeli tests, and the North Korean tests of 2006, and 2009. When it becomes available, I will definitely post it here for readers to see.
More to come
