High-definition footage allows us to view familiar events and objects in a new light thanks to the addition of minute details we might not have ever considered before. While many people have seen footage of a nuclear bomb test, be it in a movie or education program, few of us have ever seen a detailed video of such an explosion. Thanks to the folks at AtomCentral.com we can now see with crystal clarity the devastating power of a nuclear bomb test.
It is a humbling, even a little scary, reminder of humanity’s technological achievements. The explosion’s initial burst roars like a burst of thunder, while its aftershock sends out a low rumbling hum that resembles an earthquake. We are capable of incredible, awe-inspiring things.
