I was going through Basic Training and AIT in El Paso, Texas during the earlier part of 1986. On one of my two week field exercise stints (long story, I ended up having to do more than one) in the desert of White Sands, New Mexico, we were marching along a ridge-line overlooking a very deep and miles wide valley, when a huge explosion and subsequent mushroom cloud rocked our A.O. from the valley floor. Counting off flash-to-bang, we knew it was a few miles from our vantage point, but we`d had a front row seat, as it were, to the entire thing.

I have often wondered over the intervening years what that could have been. As I watched the video, I realized that there was at least one atomic test in April of 1986 in that area. Now, correlation does not equal causality, but it is a strange coincidence. We could simply have been privy to the detonation of old ordnance or something, but it was a pretty massive send-off.

Hmmmmm

Is it just me, or is it just an incredibly dumb idea to detonate so many nuclear Bombs right around the San Andreas fault?

You just don`t get it do you? Or maybe you do.

Came looking to convert `non believers`, left reading repost complaints |-(

But really, thorium is a pipe dream at this time. Will we ever use thorium commercially? I kind of doubt it. What`s not a pipe dream is gen3/3+ reactors and the breeder reactors that come with it.

Somewhere in New Mexico is a very radioactive piece of real estate. Even GB is setting of nukes in New Mexico apparently.

Thanks @Squirlz!
iirc: @Fancy did try "Classic" a couple of times, and when he puts up the "IAB MOds" thread, the result is the same: half the IABers still complain!

Perhaps they need a few trys to get used to it?

Or a smack upside the head...

Anyhow, this IS a really cool video-thing, puts it all in perspective (at least for me!)

@5Cats: That`s a really good idea, actually: a "Classics" or "Vintage" category. You`ve got my vote!

@Tacos: Oh that`s 100% true! Can`t beat solar panels for power in space! Fusion might, eventually.

@Squirlz: I agree, but since @Fancy is too BUTT-LAZY (it`s a Canadian term! Usually applied to Americans) to have a "classics" catagory, we are reduced to mockery.

Its true, solar is great idea - in space.

On our rooftops? Nah, energy isn`t dense enough to be worth the overhead of maintaining and disposing of said panels. It will be quite handy when we can paint it on without worry about kids eating the paint chips.

Repost, but if it`s provoking intelligent discussion, what`s the harm?

A repost? HOORAY! It`s catgirl time!



Solar power is the best? Has anyone calculated how much heat is generated by hundreds of square miles of pitch-black panels basking in the sun?
Didn`t think so.
Fusion > Nuclear > Hydro > everything else

"If you`re really concerned about the environment, lets talk about how many pounds of c02 a nuclear reactor outputs, and then compare it to how many watts produced per square foot of facility to any other `green renewable`. "

Solar is still and always will be the greenest form. Keep in mind it still has a long way to go in terms of maturing as a technology. Also, fusion isn`t a terrible idea, deserves a thorough looking at. Thorium reactors are also a good idea. Thorium > whatever poo is > Uranium reactors. We could be doing a MUCH, MUCH, MUCHHH better job with out energy, if the oil companies didn`t have us by the dicks.

Can you imagine how many mouths have been fed, tons of food made safe, mri`s taken, chemotherapy treatments, schools, homes, hospitals powered, space explored, and gallons of water desalinated, because at one point we developed these bombs?

If you`re really concerned about the environment, lets talk about how many pounds of c02 a nuclear reactor outputs, and then compare it to how many watts produced per square foot of facility to any other `green renewable`.

If you`re concerned about human health and safety, lets talk about gen 3/4 reactors, the modern nuclear fuel cycle, and how many Deaths per terrwatt hour all types of energy produces.

Could you imagine how many mouth could have been fed, educations paid for, free surgeries for people who REALLY needed it, all these bombs could have paid for had they simply NOT been developed?

Humans are such a cancer, for which there will never be a cure. We have even surpassed natural selection.

That`s not a graphic showing nuclear explosions. That`s a graphic showing how many times this video has been reposted.

So...you reposted a good flash piece as a low quality youtube video? Good work there...
