Testing the Atomic Cannon

This iconic image from the Cold War is the latest entry in our military category. You see, during the 50′s the Americans were obsessed with nukes. They thought they would solve all their problems, from digging holes in the ground to powering everything from planes to cars. And, of course, being used liberally to destroy anything the American’s didn’t like. There were atomic missiles, rockets, bombs, torpedoes, land mines anti-aircraft missiles and of course atomic artillery shells. This is Test Grable of Operation Upshot-Knothole, conducted in 1953 to test a nuclear shell from a huge artillery gun. The warhead was a mere 15 kilotons (smaller than Hiroshima) but it would still have been devastating. This great yet sobering image makes an ideal background wallpaper and is presented here free of charge for you to enjoy.
