Every Nuclear Test Since 1945


"In the name of national security, eight countries have tested nuclear weapons all over the world since 1945, frequently near populated places."

There have been a total of 2,054 nuclear tests during the past 70 years.

"France performed its first nuclear tests in occupied Algeria in the 1960s. "

Now I know why DeGaulle let Algeria go in 1962.
