Sobering Video A Time Lapse of Nuclear Explosions from 1945-1998

Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has produced this time line of every nuclear explosion from Trinity through Pakistan’s testing of their 2 devices in 1998.

2053 explosions, and when one considers 2 of them were for military purposes I have to think we could have explored our solar system, and sent every young adult to college with the money we wasted in Hashimoto’s tones. If you want just the down and dirty go to around 12:00 for the summary, however I found I couldn’t tear myself away from the presentation.

A haiku inspired by the artist

We hate Nevada
Clinton made the sound go down.
What is up with France?
