Nuclear Detonation Timeline

This is a great video timeline I found on youtube which cleary demonstrates in an almost scary way the increase in nuclear tests and explosions between 1945 and 1998. The explosions are plotted visually and audibly on a world map.

As the video starts out detonations are few and far between. The first three detonations represent the Manhattan Project and the two bombs that ended World War II. After a few representative minutes the USSR and Britain enter the nuclear club and the testing really starts to heat up.
