The videos are taken from a series of above and below-ground chief detonations that took place in a 1950s. They embody mixed angles covering opposite aspects of any detonation, from a initial shockwave that propagates only after a reaction, to a intense fireballs that morph into soaring fungus clouds, to a startle effects that bark external from a epicenter during high-speed. Some of a films are even in color, and one, in particular, is generally awful looking.
The Juniper exam of Operation Hardtack we occurred on Jul 22nd, 1958. It was a final exam during Bikini Atoll in a Pacific. The 65 kiloton device was detonated on a boat only a dozen feet above a waterline and it sent a cloud rocketing adult 40,000 feet into a sky. The conditions that day resulted in a film that looks impossibly dour and foreboding, if not officious evil, with blast’s fungus cloud appearing colourless black as it rises from a sea.
The film, posted below, is one of a many engaging chief exam films we have ever seen. we also enclosed another close-up video of a detonation:
