Celebrating a Big Bang

Which is the Tinity test, first nuclear explosion of human history, performed on the early morning of 16 July in the Alamogordo Test Range, New Mexico.

With that test shot the nuclear era begun - and so far, despite the megatons detonated by USA and URSS, UK, France, India, Pakistan (and probably also Israel/South Africa and in more recent times North Korea also tried), nuclear weapons have killed much less people, and ravaged less territory, than conventional ones.

Fireballs are oddly fascinating, too. Inspired by the Atomic Nerds.
