Recently, some footage of Operation Teapot was released. This is a series of nuclear tests that took place in a Nevada desert in 1955, and it’s absolutely horrifying and amazing at the same time.

Here’s a colorized version of one of the tests, but the black and white video below is just mind-bending.
Check out the recently released video in all of it’s giffy glory:
