The United States conducted 119 nuclear tests at the NTS from the start of testing in January 1951 through October 1958. original.gif




Most of those nuclear tests were carried out in the atmosphere. Some tests were positioned for firing by airdrop, but metal towers were used for many Nevada tests at heights ranging from 100 to 700 feet (30-200 meters) above the ground surface.

In 1957 and 1958, helium-filled balloons, tethered to precise heights and locations 340 to 1,500 feet (105 to 500 meters) above ground, provided a simpler, quicker, and less expensive method for the testing of many experimental devices.

The tests of the atmospheric era took place in Yucca and Frenchman Flats. The 119 nuclear tests that were conducted at the NTS during the atmospheric testing era (1951-1958) consist of 97 nuclear tests conducted in the atmosphere, of two cratering tests, detonated at depths less than 100 feet (30 meters), and of 20 underground tests.

The Area 12 Camp, located at the extreme Northwest end of the Nevada Test Site, supports miners from the tunnels in Ranier Mesa with overnight accomodations for 600 people.

Little more than a minute after a mid-1969 underground nuclear detonation, the ten-story tall 200-ton instrument tower was pulled along tracks by cables from above the detonation point. About 20 minutes later, the ground collapsed into the cavity caused by the detonation, producing a 175-foot crater

Underground Nuclear Test

The HURON KING underground nuclear test was a DOD sponsored event on 24 June 1980. The test involved a device with a yield of less than 20 kilotons, and tested the effects of system generated electromagnetic pulse [SGEMP] on a full-scale operating DSCS-3 military communications satellite. The spacecraft was contained in a large above-ground tank.

Nintendo Dork-

That is such an excellent point.  So glad that you connected the two names, with the same location..  Boy, nothing gets past you, does it?

All that from some pictures.. Imagine if you had read the text in the links..  You would be unstoppable.      whistling2.gif


(The pictures have been around for years, since it is now virtually impossible to attain new ones)  We've all seen them, but they still are interesting.  (To read up on)

There was actually a thread here, I believe years ago with the pictures.


And, anyone that researches military bases, has seen them.  I still like reading up on it, and looking at the pics, so  tongue.gif    (that was in favor of Al, and his new system)
