Watch Astonishing, Unedited Footage of the Navy Nuking Warships

It’s arguably the most unsettling nuclear weapons test of all time.


MAY 19, 2021

  • In the summer of 1945, the Navy assembled a large fleet of ex-warships and dropped atomic bombs on them.
  • The test was designed to determine what effects nuclear weapons would have on naval warfare.
  • The Navy learned nukes scorch ships but to really hurt them, detonate the bombs underwater.

At the end of World War II, the U.S. Navy faced an existential question. The Navy had ended the war with a fleet of 6,768 warships, including 28 fleet carriers, 23 battleships, 232 submarines, and 2,547 amphibious ships.

It was the strongest, most powerful fleet in human history, and yet, the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki promised even greater power concentrated in a single aerial bomb.

So, the Navy wondered: What kind of effect would such a bomb have on a fleet of warships? And could A-bombs make assembled battle fleets obsolete?

Watch Astonishing, Unedited Footage of the Navy Nuking Warships: Part 2

It’s arguably the most unsettling nuclear weapons test of all time.


MAY 19, 2021

This is the second part to Watch Astonishing, Unedited Footage of the Navy Nuking Warships.

In the first Crossroads test, Able, the Navy dropped a 23-kiloton atomic bomb on the assembled fleet.

The air burst explosion, according to the Atomic Heritage Foundation, was 1,500 to 2,000 feet off target. The bomb sank only five warships, however, and Navy officials were reportedly underwhelmed by the results. The footage above is from the Able test.

Able’s nuclear airburst devastated ships, turning them into burned-out hulks. The escort carrier USS Independence is one example, and the heavily damaged submarine USS Skate is another.

  1. Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:
    Thank you as you brought this out just when I had written a long comment moments ago then this posting of yours came up in the trend at the top as the notice that just came to me pointed to this being the newest posting, which tell me God is talking and how your posting ties into this response I just made to a reader of my blog where I did point out the nuclear factor of what is going on here in this out of control high tech AI situation we are now in! I have an actual 16MM stock footage made back then as a distribution copy for military and educational systems that I acquired decades ago which also tells me God is talking here! I’ll get back you and this posting a bit later to fill in some blanks I hope; but I will return!
    God bless.
    This is where I made that comment.

    • I said I would return and here I am to add this additional inspired information mostly what I had written previously in a very heartfelt blog essay which I want to leave a couple of excerpts here with the link for you to please check it all out its a bit longer so take the time and you won’t regret it!

      The world has played with fire for too long and now the magnitude of this folly or vanity is so massive that there will never be another time so ripe, for not just the communists Marxist devils of the world, but, no better a moment for the Devil himself to seize this opportunity to steal most if not all of humanity he figures from God, as his one final ultimate act of contempt and hatred of God Himself!

      In my mind there is no doubt we are in WWIII and this is the final battle, but, not just as you are well aware of war by attrition, to as in the past, slug it out until the good guys prevail, and then rebuild, only this is to have that one huge spiritual battle of Armageddon the clash between Heaven and Hell when all the forces both material and spiritual will be unleashed like never before and it is coming sooner I’m sure, barring any act of God Himself to postpone this inevitable demise. There is no way all the powers and principalities are going to sort this earthly man-made mess out to some comfortable good compromise or peace. Its one big poker-game and the stakes are never going to be higher; winner takes all!

      I prefer to think you’re the one in the greater state of grace being truly inspired, but, I’m a hit or miss sort who wants to do better for God and do at times and then I allow the bad that has happened, to gain my attention and distort my feelings or clarity. I mostly let anger get a grip and my blood boils, but, never to actually strike out at all, just only hurting myself with stress and worry which the Devil loves any of us to do. It’s best to look at it like my father always told me, “they can do anything to this body and even destroy it, but my soul belongs to God!” That sums it up as to being strong in ones faith not letting anything come between us and God through our faith in Jesus Christ! We just need to do the work and commit daily, religiously and even a regimental practice keeping our asses in alignment with His will.
