Default Time lapse map of every nuclear explosion ever on Earth

This is well worth a look:

"Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinity” test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear).

Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto, who began the project in 2003, says that he created it with the goal of showing ”the fear and folly of nuclear weapons.” It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming."

Out of curiosity, the places in the US (for example) where the nuclear tests were carried out - are they no-go areas or can people still go there?

In the US the tests were conducted in parts of the desert states (Nevada if memory serves) that are owned by the millitary, so you won't be going to see them anytime soon...

2,053 nuclear explosions. I hadn't realised there had been so many. That's scary and rather sickening.
