    Here is a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory YouTube playlist of 64 recently declassified nuclear bomb test videos.

    Did you see Iran's nuclear test ?

    The reason I hear was that someone was worried about the films deteriorating and that they were scattered all over in many different archives.

    On the other hand, Dr. Strangelove, a most awesome film.
    Now I don't worry, I just love the bomb.

    The one titled "Operation Hardtack-1 - Nutmeg 51538" shows a test over the ocean (Bikini?). I see quite a few sea birds taking flight/fright after the explosion. I'm guessing those birds would all have been permanently blinded by the initial flash?
