A-Bomb Blast Effects (1959) - YouTube
I've only ever seen a few seconds of this footage in various documentaries but OMG thatís real A Bomb there playing with, apparently all of the marines die of cancer related illness (No surprise), which was probably part of the reason for doing the test, I.E. uncle Sam cooks its soldiers and see's how many years the live after the tests etc, the tape around the ankles really got me LOL! What protection was that supposed to give, only heaven knows, and what about the poor guys lungs, and its not as if the U.S. Government didnít know about the effects of radiation and fallout by the late 1940ís early 1950ís. I wonder if there relation ever gone any compensation some how I suspect not.
