Newly Restored Footage of 1953 Nuclear Tests Shows Terrifying Power of Atomic Bomb

On March 17, 1953, a series of experimental Nuclear tests were carried out with atomic explosions in the Nevada test area. Now the images have been restored in high definition showing the chilling and devastating impact of these explosions on what is around them.

To be more precise, from the YouTube Channel Central Atom account we see the moment when the bombs heat explosion melts two cars (sedans), a bus and a tent. The tests were carried out with detonations of 15 kilotons.

It is estimated that between 1951 and 1992 the United States conducted 928 nuclear tests in Nevada, 100 of which were atmospheric and, therefore, those that probably propagated radiation to nearby areas.

By the way, if you look closely, the paint on the cars seems to fade before the rest. The reason is due to the electromagnetic radiation that comes a few seconds before the shock wave.
