So this is all kinds of amazing and frighting as hell at the same time.

This was recently declassified and shows a very close up view of a detonation. Insane to think this was recorded with 62 year old camera tech

I almost want them to set another one off just so they can record it with 2017 tech. Almost.

The full playlist is here.

And if you want to scare yourself silly, check this site out.

So when was the last time something like this even happened? Also how far away is the camera to the explosion there?

So basically, it's gonna take a lot of effort to cause Armageddon.

Since the 1963 Test Ban Treaty prohibited the United States, Soviet Union(later Russian Federation), and United Kingdom from testing nuclear weapons in the atmosphere, underwater, or in space, most of these tests have been performed underground since then. 

The last nuclear test by the United States that we're aware of was Operation Julin in 1993. We do know that North Korea, for instance, have been carrying out tests underground as well.

According to Wikipedia, the bomb being detonated in this video had an explosive yield of 43 kilotonnes.

So the explosion created by the Tsar Bomba would have been well over a thousand times more powerful.

You really have to wonder just how much of the planet's ecosystems we've destroyed performing nuclear tests.

What was the link to that website where you could see the impact of a nuclear explosion if you put the pin down in a specific part of the map?

A fair amount, but I imagine most of the harm has been done to the human race in general. Genetic conditions, defects, and god knows what else. Bikini Atoll is still suffering from the aftereffects of the United States detonating 23 nuclear devices between 1946 and 1958.

You can see the guide wires being vaporized ahead of the main blast wave, which produces those protrusions.
