Trinity and Beyond - The Atomic Bomb Movie

On July 16, 1945, at a site called Trinity, a plutonium bomb was assembled and brought to the top of a tower. The bomb was detonated, producing an intense flash and a fireball that expanded to 600 meters in two seconds. The explosive power was equivalent to 18.6 kilotons of TNT. It grew to a height of more than 12 kilometers, boiling up in the shape of a mushroom. Forty seconds later, the blast of air from the bomb reached the observation bunkers, along with a long and deafening roar of sound. And so began the ATOMIC AGE...
The following award-winning documentary, accompanied by a powerful musical score performed by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, tells the unsettling, yet visually fascinating story of the design, development, production and testing of nuclear weapons between 1945 and 1963.

Did you know nuclear bombs have been suspended in air by balloons, shot by canons, exploded under the ocean and detonated in outer space? Watch as nothing succeeds to get in the way of the devastating power concealed in the heart of matter.



Jaw-dropping, I know...
