Overview
Since 1945, over 2,400 nuclear explosions have been detonated at hundreds of locations worldwide. This is the story of ten such locations. Join Peter Kuran, the award-winning creator of TRINITY AND BEYOND: THE ATOMIC BOMB MOVIE, and narrator William Shatner, for an unforgettable visit to Ground Zero - former testing sites from Alaska to Mississippi, including the Nevad Test Site, "the most bombed placed on earth." Witness actual newsreel footage of an unarmed nuke that was accidentally dropped on a South Carolina town. Take a slide show tour of test sites used by France, England, and the Soviet Union. Watch as the Atomic Energy Commission explores the use of thermonuclear weapons for "peaceful purposes," such as building new canals and harbors, and increasing output from natural gas wells.
