Alert! : Time Lapse of All Nuclear Explosions on Earth from 1945 – 1998

It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming.

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.”

Have you ever seen an Ant die of a throbbing pain UP CLOSE?
Nothing is painful, we can witness!
Even a drop of Hot water will cause this to that Ant.
Feeling Pity?
What about our Chemical Weapons!
Feel what it does to Our body?
We can’t hear the Ant’s Cry,
Thousands of Brothers and Sisters, Little kids wept out to death!
Not Feeling Pity, Still?

Can you take a razor blade and make a cut on your palm SLOWLY?
It’s Impossible!
Even a Soldier cannot cut slowly on himself
Feeling the Pain?
What about our Nuclear Weapons!
Feel what it does to Our body?
We can’t beat the prolonged pain,
Thousands of Brothers and Sisters, Little kids wept out to death!
Not Feeling the Pain, Still?

Would you like to feel the pain of mutilation ON YOU?
Hmmm… “Enough!” I can hear you say
Even an enemy deserves some mercy
Feeling Humane?

Millions of Brothers and Sisters, Little kids wept out to death!
Not Feeling Humane, Still?

Wherever you are, Whatever you are
