Nuclear Weapon Effects on People And Property

This is "Operation Cue," a US government atomic bomb test from 1955. The test was conducted in Nevada with a real nuclear weapon, and used houses of differing construction, canned goods, a large propane tank, and test dummies to measure the extent of damage caused by the initial blast. This film is in the public domain.

WOW, that was eye opening... can you imagine waiting just 24 hours after the blast to go in? Crazy! My grandparents had a bomb shelter... and of course I was a product of hiding under our desks if in school... thanks for the film
