Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory declassified and digitally remastered over 10,000 videos of nuclear bomb tests. They posted them on Youtube.

This video is an explanation for why they went back to look at the films and why they digitally restored them.

Pop some nukes... I mean corn. Pop some corn, and enjoy the FIREWORKS.

Or maybe I should have said, nuke some corn, instead (as in microwavable popcorn)?

The below link is a google search results page showing a bunch of the new videos, now publicly available.

What causes those streamers that shoot up like that?









Are there any physicist types around that could answer this question?

The streamers are actually from test rockets fired before the nuclear explosion
