    The one in the middle...you sure that's a nuke test?

    And if we had sig pictures enabled and you had that as your sig I would hate you so much.

    Is the second one a nuke test either? If it was a nuke, wouldnt the camera man and all his mates be like... vaporised instantly? Doesn't look too far away from 'em.

    within 35miles everything is vapourised, within 45miles everything is blown to peices, 55+ the temps are so high you'd sizzle

    On the middle one there is no evidence of disturbance to the ground around the 'blast' - There certainly would be if a nuke went off. My guess is either fire or drilling.

    It's quite possible that the middle one is an underground testing, as carried out by the US.

    Can't be sure though.

    Thats on the bigs ones :)

    Link

    Think 8-ball is right, underground testing. THe picsa looks the same. They have to be burried up to 600ft to make sure as little radiation etc is exposed as possible, just for a 5kt one :jawdrop:

    If you are talking about this pic then no....Notice the linked pic has a large amount of dust at ground level...Not visable on the pic on this page.

    Found it.

    Operation Baneberry. (18th december 1970)

    A 10kt device detonated at 910ft below ground in a shaft.

    What we are seeing is a jet of radioactive material emerging after the capping at the top of the shaft failed.

    In other words it is an underground test that went quite wrong, resulting in the worst accidental release of radiactive material at the Nevada Test Site.

    Curiously, this was america's 666th nuclear test.

    I've seen old footage of a load of people (soldiers/scientists) putting on goggles and things, standing facing the explosion many miles away, thinking they're safe because of the distance and the fact that they're sort of standing in this sort of trench.

    Anyway, you see the nuke go off and the camera image blooms so you can't see anything (bright flash of light effectively blinding the camera temporarily) then the image re-appears and theres like this second shockwave of dust and various assorted crap (theres a second shockwave from a nuclear blast IIRC thats like a wind carrying radioactive dust and debris outwards) that knocks a few of the people over (somebody must've miscalculated and they were all a bit too close) and scatters a lot of their equipment :jawdrop:.

    Bet the poor people are suffering healthwise now from being so close...high doses of radiation and all that. What made it worse was these people got up and started to walk towards the test site :eeek:

    the second one looks like a US testing during WW2/after WW2... where they were so small (hiroshima sized) that the after effects were only seen years later (when all those guys got random cancers, were sterile etc)....


    the 3rd one looks like a deep ground testing (note the crater that looks like 1-2 football fields)

    The third one is the operation baneberry detonation I described a few posts earlier.

    -910feet, but it went a bit wrong and the cap blew.

    At that depth, you probably wouldn't get a crater.
