Atomic Test Image Gallery

I have collected these images, taken during the U.S. nuclear weapons program of the 1950s--1960s, from what I believed were public sources; so, as far as I know, these are all in the public domain. This is not, by any means, an exhaustive gallery of all images related to the nuclear weapons testing program. I share here the images I thought were impressive, evocative, and/or aesthetically appealing.

The full size images in this gallery are 1024x768, many have been scaled (mostly enlarged) and/or placed on a colored canvas. When vertical padding was needed, I tended to pad more on the bottom, since that generally hides behind the taskbar (if you haven’t moved it or set it to auto-hide). These images should scale satisfactorily for any computer desktop with a 4:3 aspect ratio. [Ed. note – I created this image gallery back when Windows XP was new.]

Images are in chronological order. Under each thumbnail below, the program name is on top and the test name is on the bottom. Date of test and a link to more information about the test are provided with the full size image.
