I wonder how long these 5 guys lived after this? The radiation exposure had to be high.

Genetic mutations from radiation exposure sometimes do not show up until 2 generation after.

2kt isn't very much and 10,000 feet is pretty but still. Is that for real? They knew the effects of radiation then.

The idea of the test was to calm peoples nerves about nuclear explosions, sadly it didnt work as people still think a single nuclear bomb could destroy New York or London.

from the video, this was a 2KT shot. Test basically of an Atomic Air to Air anti-aircraft shot.

This one was a small one... and they fired others even smaller in yield.

That was an extraordinary slice of history there.

Cheers for the find. Bookmarked and sharing!

The cadence of the American accent has shifted in the past 50 years quite noticeably.

Calling an atomic explosion over their heads beautiful, while patting each other on the backs and managing not to lose control over their bodily functions? That takes some spine.

The question was asked, what happened to these men after the blast. The answer is found in this article:

[link to www.npr.org]

My dad was Col. Sidney Bruce. He died in April of 2005. He was 85 years old.

I wonder how long these 5 guys lived after this? The radiation exposure had to be high.

Very interesting. I guess the atmosheric conditions were just right that day, and others got the dose, instead of them.
