    "1945-1998" by Isao Hashimoto: 2003

    Link: Nuclear explosions across the globe: 1945 - 1998

    This video lasts 14 mins 22 secs.

    “1945-1998” by Isao Hashimoto is a video that maps 2,053 nuclear explosions — all but two of which tests — conducted across the globe; only North Korea’s recent tests are excluded, as they occurred after this video was made (2003). Each second represents a month of history — the 1950s and (especially) the 1960s were rather heavy decades for nuclear testing.
    I watched the presentation from start to finish and I found it quite depressing how destructive humans are as a species.

    Thought it was really powerful. Good find.
    On a lighter note, did you notice how the UK did all its test on the other side of the planet from our home? Given that it was (unfortunately) going to happen _somewhere_, I think someone made a good call there.

    And we on the other side of the world thank you for your kind contribution of nuclear waste to our environments instead of your own .
