Incredibly Clear Footage Shows the Blast Effect of 1953 Atomic Bomb

By Casey Chan on at

AtomCentral shows us some amazingly clear HD footage restored from 1953 of the Atomic Cannon test from Upshot-Knothole Grable in Nevada. In the video, you can see cars, jeeps, buses and tanks against the backdrop of the massive blast's initial burst and shockwave. The blast eventually swallows everything.

I'd suggest you watch the video in 1080p HD for the full effect.
