Nuclear explosions in the picture

Since 1945, the world was carried out about two thousand nuclear tests and committed two nuclear attacks. The undisputed favorite for the release of destructive nuclear power is the United States.

Attention photographers not spared uncontrollable and terrifying process of an atomic explosion. We present our sample photo from the book by Peter Khurana "How to make a photo of the atomic bomb.

1. Specifically, the process of releasing so many looks radiant and thermal energy of an atomic explosion in the air above the desert. Here you can still see the military equipment that will be destroyed in a moment of shock, imprinted in the form of the crown, surrounded the epicenter of the explosion. It is seen as an impact wave reflected from the Earth's surface and about to connect with a flaming ball.

2. Commissioned by the Ministry of Defense and the Atomic Energy Commission spices center Lookout Maunteyn (CA) were made thousands of photos of nuclear explosions. Photograph nuclear explosion very unsafe, because without special. a suit is necessary.

3. Tests of nuclear missiles in the Pacific from 1946 to 1962 not only showed their strength in the fight against the Navy, and became a source of nuclear pollution of the ocean.

4. Large fortune can be considered the original photo of the nuclear explosion when the velocity of propagation is close to the speed of light. The image was made with incredibly high-spirited camera shutter, which is located 3.5 km from the epicenter of the explosion.

5. Luminous sphere of nuclear explosion absorbs tower placed in it the ammunition.

6. The next photo early stages of the explosion, made a special camera, located a few kilometers from the epicenter.

7. For not bad pictures on the test sites often work teams of photographers. In the photo: the test nuclear explosion in the Nevada desert. Right visible plumes missile with which scientists determine the properties of the shock wave.

8. The explosion of the atomic bomb, the power of which is equal to about half the power of the bomb "Little Boy" dropped Aug. 6, 1945 on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, lifted into the air thousands of tons of water and called the whole group of the devastating tsunami.

9. At the test site in the Nevada desert photographers center Lookout Maunteyn in 1953 was made an unusual picture of the phenomenon (the ring of fire in a mushroom cloud after the explosion of a nuclear projectile guns), the nature of which long occupied the minds of scientists.

10. Experts at the center of Lookout Maunteyn make photos of the aircraft, which is to take part in nuclear tests (1957).

11. The enormous aircraft was taken at 8 km from the epicenter of a nuclear explosion, but saved from severe blast failed.

12. Paparazzi from Lookout Maunteyn stand waist-deep in the dust raised by the shock wave of a nuclear explosion (photo 1953).

13. In the process of chain reaction is a sharp set of allocation of energy, which causes an immediate increase in the temperature of the explosive substance, which reaches millions of degrees and transmitted to the environment. In the photo — school bus, which is to take part in nuclear tests.

14. After the explosion of the atomic bomb test paint on the bus foams.

15. And in a moment the paint starts to evaporate from the iron hull bus.

16. But from the complete combustion of the bus strike rescues wave, which instantly extinguishes fire.

17. During the subsequent explosion of all the components of a school bus capable ablaze, burning down …

19. Apart from the tremendous thermal radiation from a nuclear explosion released a massive electrical radiation in a wide range of infection causing radioactive areas and all that therein is.

20. Despite the deadly radiation, in 1951 nuclear tests in Nevada were invited to follow different basic personality was popular nuclear tourism (people tried to get into the zone, where he was seen nuclear fungus), and during exercises «Desert Rock» Command has ordered Marines run directly under the deadly fungus.

22. Photo of ruins of the Catholic Church on the deserted hill in the Japanese town of Nagasaki. In this landscape of the town began after the explosion of the atomic bomb dropped U.S. at the end of the second world war.
