A chilling tour of Atomic Test Sites on US Soil
9 February 2006 | by (Los Angeles, United States) – See all my reviews

If this neat little documentary doesn't get to you, you must have a heart of stone. These tests show the crazy scope of the atomic experiments that were conducted by the weapons folks to justify their own existence and keep themselves in business. Crazy stuff like the Plowshare program, Project GasBuggy, and of course, the Cannakin Experiment will not only give you an idea of the terrible power of these weapons, it will give you a new appreciation for the freedom of the press - and why it is important. If you think the critical importance and world shaking consequences of terrorists - or terrorist states - having nukes is exaggerated, this film will change your mind forever.
