Watch previously unreleased footage of 1955 atomic bomb testing in glorious HD

Atom Central recently published these four unreleased videos of atomic bomb testing in 1955. The footage, taken from Operation Teapot at the test site in Nevada, is in glorious HD so it’s pretty incredible but watch out for the blinding light. Even in a small little YouTube window, it hurts.

I love these videos, but probably prefer this HD video (from the same source), even though it’s in black & white, for its show of raw destructive power.
