Nevada Test Site

I was listening to “Physics for Future Presidents“, a course taught at Berkeley, on my iPod recently. (You can get it via the iTunes Music store). The lecturer, Richard A. Muller, mentioned the Nevada Test Site when talking about Nuclear weapons. He told his students to look it up with Google Earth. Which prompted me to look for it on maps.google.com instead, as I don’t have Google Earth installed. This is what I found. Wow. Those nuclear physicists don’t muck about. They blew up a huge number of bombs out there. It is like giant aliens came down and drew circles on the earth and threw a hail of meteors down upon the ground.
