One of the enjoyable things about being a librarian is serendipitously finding something interesting while researching something completely different. In my search today on a completely unrelated subject I found an interesting video on youtube.com. A Japanese artist, Isao Hashimoto, has created various works on the topic of nuclear weapons. The one I stumbled upon is a video entitled 1945-1988 which deals with the 2053 nuclear tests/explosions that occurred worldwide during that time period. It shows where any by which country the explosions the explosions took place. There are also sound effects and score areas to see which countries were doing what. Guess which country “won?” Anyway it is interesting to watch the proliferation and the eventual decrease in the numbers.
