That's pretty cool. And extremely sobering.
This is a discussion on Animated map of all the nuclear explosions in the world from 1945-1998 within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; I stumbled across this site when I saw a link on facebook.

I stumbled across this site when I saw a link on facebook. Not sure if the data is truly accurate, but man...if it is... It's a 14 minute video detailing the number and rough location of all nuclear detonations from multiple countries from 1945 until 1998. Check it out.

A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
Wait till Israel is attacked and they use a few of theirs on Iran.
Interesting to note that the cancer death rate pre nuclear weapons from 1900 to 1940 was about 80 per 100,000. This number began a rapid rise almost doubling in the 50's to about 200 per 100,000 in 2000.

Very interesting perspective, but it seems that south central Russia and the southeastern part of the U.S. should be glowing at night.

Strange to be reminded that not only were we killing millions of innocents before we made it to the moon, but also how nuke happy everyone was back then...

Although the nuclear tests may have contributed to the cancer rate, it is much more likely that most people who died from 1900 to 1940 died from something else before they had a chance to die from cancer.
But yeah, we and the Russians were setting off a LOT of nukes back then.
So how come they didn't show the Isreali/South African tests?

I'm surprised that I haven't heard anyone claim that the heat generated by nuclear explosions is a cause of global warming. Or are we back to global cooling, now?
It would be nuclear winter (clouds of debris obscuring the sun for many years). But, to prevent fallout in the atmosphere, these tests have been underground since the Limited test Ban Treaty of 1963. It was a hot year for nuclear testing according to the demo. I couldn't help but think of Kennedy and the end of an era for the human race.
-Blackstone’s Commentaries 145–146, n. 42 (1803) in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008)Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force
when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.
No wonder everything causes cancer in California.

There isn't one of us that hasn't been exposed in some way or another to varying degrees of radioactive fallout from all these tests. Even a few thousand miles is no insurance aginst the dangers. The fallout spread from the tests (both above and below ground) can be researched and the maps show how almost the entire US has been blanketed repeatedly since the "gadget" was first detonated.
In Nevada, 'Simon,' a 43-kiloton atomic device was detonated 300 feet above the ground on April 25, 1953. Simon's mushroom cloud rose to over 40,000 feet and entered the jet stream moving at about 115 miles per hour towards the northeast. Around midnight that same day it ran into thunderstorms near the Albany area of New York State and dumped an incredible amount of radioactive fallout over the area.
Just part of living in the "Atomic Age" I guess...
