OPERATION UPSHOT/KNOTHOLE, THE ATOMIC CANNON AND OPERATION TEAPOT
Bomb Damage Assesments Evaluated, Nuclear Artillery Deployed & New Bomb Designs Perfected

Contents:

Operation Upshot-Knothole (1953, Color, 35:32)
In the largest series of nuclear tests yet conducted, eleven devices were detonated on the Nevada Proving Grounds in order to more clearly determine the many effects of nuclear explosions upon a variety of military and civilan structures and assets.

Operation Upshot-Knothole Project (1953, B&W, 20:50)
A more detailed analysis made upon a large number of project film shorts demonstrating the individualized effects of nuclear detonations upon military ground facilities, forest trees, F-47 aircraft, various civilian home configurations and more.

Effects On B-50 Aircraft (1953, B&W, Silent, 18:23)
The specific effects of a nuclear detonation upon B-50 bomber aircraft flying at altitude at various distances from a group of 4 consecutive explosions are documented in film before, during and after flight.

The 280MM Atomic Gun At The Nevada Proving Ground (1953, Color, 10:26)
The infamous "Atomic Cannon" is tested at the Nevada Proving Grounds prior to its being deployed throughout Western Europe.

Operation Teapot - Military Effects Studies (1953, B&W, 30:46)
A series of 14 detonations incorporating a variety of new and experimental atomic designs conducted with an eye to standardizing atomic design models into more efficient and universally employable devices.


Nuclear Weapons Tests are experiments carried out to determine the effectiveness, yield, and explosive capability of nuclear weapons. Testing nuclear weapons offers practical information about how the weapons function, as well as how detonations are affected by different conditions; and how personnel, structures, and equipment are affected when subjected to nuclear explosions. However, nuclear testing has often been used as an indicator of scientific and military strength, and many tests have been overtly political in their intention; most nuclear weapons states publicly declared their nuclear status by means of a nuclear test. The first nuclear device was detonated as a test by the United States at the Trinity site in New Mexico on July 16, 1945, with a yield approximately equivalent to 20 kilotons of TNT. The first thermonuclear weapon technology test of an engineered device, codenamed "Ivy Mike", was tested at the Enewetak Atoll in the Marshall Islands on November 1, 1952 (local date), also by the United States. The largest nuclear weapon ever tested was the "Tsar Bomba" of the Soviet Union at Novaya Zemlya on October 30, 1961, with the largest yield ever seen, an estimated 50-58 megatons. In 1963, three (UK, US, Soviet Union) of the then four nuclear states and many non-nuclear states signed the Limited Test Ban Treaty, pledging to refrain from testing nuclear weapons in the atmosphere, underwater, or in outer space. The treaty permitted underground nuclear testing. France continued atmospheric testing until 1974, and China continued until 1980. Neither has signed the treaty. Underground tests in the Soviet Union continued until 1990, the United Kingdom until 1991, the United States until 1992 (its last nuclear test), and both China and France until 1996. In signing the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty in 1996, these states have pledged to discontinue all nuclear testing; the treaty has not yet entered into force because of failure to be ratified by eight countries. Non-signatories India and Pakistan last tested nuclear weapons in 1998. North Korea conducted nuclear tests in 2006, 2009, 2013, 2016, and 2017. As of May 20, 2021, the most recent confirmed nuclear test occurred in September 2017 in North Korea.
