The 62 newly declassified videos show nuclear bomb experiments being conducted between 1945 and 1962.
Released on Thursday by the Lawrence Livermore National Library in California, the chilling clips demonstrate the terrifying capabilities of the atomic bomb.

"We've received a lot of demand for these videos and the public has a right to see this footage," said nuclear weapon physicist Gregg Spriggs. "Not only are we preserving history, but we're getting much more consistent answers with our calculations."

Many of the recordings had degraded over time and required specialist techniques to restore.

"It's been 25 years since the last nuclear test, and computer simulations have become our virtual test ground. But those simulations are only as good as the data they're based on," said Spriggs.

"Accurate data is what enables us to ensure the stockpile remains safe, secure and effective without having to return to testing."

The newly released videos are available to view on YouTube - here.

Ya sure just get rid of the military budget - We will invite ISIS in and North Korea should be a good time. Imagine a world without war....... imagine a big mac w/out the calories. Never going to happen. †

The U.S. has done over 1000 nuclear tests.† It has also tested more nukes than any country in the world. †† So when we complain about medical issues like cancer, we only need to look towards the countries that has tested the most in the world.† On a larger scale our world is like a vivarium--what comes around goes around.

Agreed that US formed ISIS. And I hope you know why, the broad answer is clear as day. When we removed Saddam Hussein (who had no respect or patience for terroritsts) that sparked a whole new whirlpool.... but ISIS was formed as a branch of Al Queda ... they were members who were above and beyond that faction.. anyways , Isis is pretty much being shut down . Donít hear about beheadings or the devastating terror they were pulling over the last few years .

When a place like North Korea is fixing to have nukes, I guess I'm glad we're not a place that doesn't.† I do wish everyone would just get along, though.†

Hey, I have an idea.....let's travel to a remote place of pristine beauty, white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, wonderful sea life and then just blow it all to hell with our black cloud of death.† Wee.† Doesn't this sound great? The world is filled with idiots.††
