That is the most disturbing film I've ever seen in my life! Not kidding. All the horror flicks in the world don't come close. I'm glad to have watched it once, to gain perspective, but will never allow myself to sit through that again.

This picture is so interesting, and so is this similar one:
That pic, as a previous poster mentioned, gives you some idead of scale, what with the tiny little trees at the bottom.
Those pictures were taken within a few picoseconds of detonation. It's so crazy to see this stage photographed. The immense force of nuclear destruction is almost belied by these seemingly innocent photos.
*There have been 2,036 known nuclear bomb explosions since World War two.
