    Default Nuclear Bomb Crater discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Nuclear Bomb Crater

    Ever wanted to see what the creater of a 81 Kt nuclear bomb detonation looks like. This is the crater from Operation Greenhouse. The USA nuclear test program in 1951 on the Enewetak Atol, Pacific Ocean.

    Weird. That looks like a radio telescope or something next to it. I wouldn't have wanted to dig that hole.

    No longer "Laid back at the lake."
