Map of the Day: Nuclear Tests

Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions that took place between 1945 and 1998.  The action begins with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinity” test near Los Alamos and concludes with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998 (The project does omit North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade).

Things start out a little slow but really get cooking around 1962.
