Every single Nuclear Detonation from 1945 to 1998 on a Video

As a curator for a Japanese Museum, Isao Hashimoto intended to reach out to everyone in the world with a video showing every single Nuclear detonation in the world from 1945 – 1998. The video also adds the Nuclear bombs dropped by the USA in Hiroshima and Nagasaki regions of Japan.

On this video, 1 second is 1 month and each blinking light, sound and numbers on the world map show how many detonations/ experiments have been conducted by which specific country.

The video is based on data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). The number is considered to be accurate. It includes both underground and atmospheric nuclear tests. For some of these tests, more than one nuclear device was detonated at the same time, increasing the overall yield, but it was only counted as one test.

The number of experiments should serve as a clear indication of which country has been doing the most nuclear experimentation so far. It is a well known joke that the country doing the most Nuclear experimentation ends up accusing a smaller country of either housing nuclear weapons or conducting experimentation.
