“1945-1998” by Isao Hashimoto

Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto created this animated map of 20th century nuclear explosions. Look out for the Trinity test and the Bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, followed by over 2,000 nuclear weapons tests. Thanks to Historian Bo Jacobs who showed this video at his talk at the UW this week!
