Description
Atomic bomb explosion at the Nevada Proving Grounds, photographed by Edgerton and his colleagues at EG&G for the Atomic Energy Commission; before 1952. Revealing the incredible anatomy of the first microseconds of an atomic explosion, this ominous fireball was documented in a 1/100,000,000-of-a-second exposure, taken from seven miles away with a lens ten feet long. The intense heat vaporized the steel tower and turned the desert sand to glass. (from "Stopping TIme" (1987), pp. 144-5). (CC)

Copy of a high-speed photograph of an atomic bomb explosion, using a magneto-optic shutter. (CC) Atomic bomb explosion photographed by Edgerton and his colleagues at EG&G, likely at the Nevada Proving Grounds, on commission for the Atomic Energy Commission; circa 1952. Revealing the incredible anatomy of the first microseconds of an atomic explosion, the fireball was documented in a 1/100,000,000-of-a-second exposure, taken from seven miles away with a lens ten feet long. In another few microseconds the Joshua trees, silhouetted at the base of the rapidly expanding explosion, will be engulfed by the shock and heat waves and incinerated.

The terrifying explosion caused lightning-like energy to descend the guide wires of the tower. (see "Stopping Time" (1987), pp. 144-5). (CC) HEE-NC-52006
