A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 - by Isao Hashimoto



 Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 – by Isao Hashimoto
Everyone must take a break for 15 minutes. Sit down and watch it like a meditation
as if you are time traveling forward with 1 second ~ 1 month.
During this time travel, watch how the nuclear bombs explode.
It is really alarming and this will make you feel how fragile we really are.Please share with everyone and stop the invasion to Iran at all cost as it may trigger WW3 with the possible nuclear exchanges.
“Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinity” test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear).
Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto, who began the project in 2003, says that he created it with the goal of showing”the fear and folly of nuclear weapons.” It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming.
