During the 1950s the United States detonated 739 nuclear weapons around the world in remote and unpopulated places. Often the scientists and civil engineers built entire village wholly unoccupied save for mannequins positioned as if in a moment frozen in time. This was done to help study the need for protecting a population in case of a nuclear attack. These amazing black and white photos reveal an oddly haunting surreal world. Of course, today’s nukes are much more powerful than these.
