This YouTube playlist contains the digitized raw visual recordings of 64 above-ground nuclear tests conducted by the United States between 1947 and 1962. The videos range in length from a few seconds to seven minutes. They present tests conducted in the Marshall Islands and the test site in Nevada. An introduction featuring Greg Spriggs, a weapons expert at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Jim Moye, the film project's editor, explains the rationale for the project and the methods used to digitize the archival footage of the tests. The tests include both atomic and hydrogen bombs. No information other than the name of the test accompanies the video; however, viewers can search the test name elsewhere, such as Wikipedia, to access additional information on the tests. Spriggs and Moye plan to continue to add more videos from the 210 U.S. atmospheric tests that occurred during this time period.
