Nuclear Explosion

Strange, super-minimalistic raw film of a test nuclear explosion from 1953.  After several minutes of flickering gray and quiet ambient sound, the blast fills the screen all-white, then receeds to a silent, washed-out mushroom cloud.  This is followed nearly a minute later by a sharp, dull blast sound (since the speed of sound is much slower than light).  The video concludes with several minutes of gray clouds.
