Атомные взрывы на планете Земля за период 1945 до 1998 г.

Компания друзей в ЖЖ готовится отмечать Хэллоуин. Я не очень люблю страшилки и не умею их сочинять. Но поддержать начинание хочется. Поэтому я помещаю тут реальную страшилку, из жизни. Интересно, что в ютъюб она была помещена 3 года назад 24 октября, то есть также в преддверии Хэллоуина.

A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 - by Isao Hashimoto

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.
