    Good link Joe, I've wanted to tour the test site very limited tours though. I did visit the ATM last year, very quickly, there is so much information to see.

    If you search for apple II, bilby crater or other terms on the tour you can get some good pictures.

    did they really think that the effects on a human would be the same as the effect on a mannequin?

    Yeah like Joe said, people wandering around with no masks on the day after, wonder how long these people lived afterwards?

    With the Chernobyl Diaries movie coming out tomorrow there will be a renewed interest in the Ukraine city of Pripyat, if you do searches online there are pics everywhere showing that city since the Chernobyl disaster, and some showing that there is still alot of radiation there all these years later.
