nuclear detonation infographic video

via the Blogora, an excellent video infographic that shows the number of nuclear bomb detonations between 1945 and 1998. The number is staggering. If, like me, you’re fairly young, you might assume that the United States hasn’t detonated a bomb since before you were born (1980 in my case). Um, wrong. This video is particularly interesting, I think, for the way it remediates old-school videogames (I couldn’t help but think of Atari) in its visuals and sounds. The audio, particularly, is both eerie because of the ticker and melodious when many bombs go off in the same second (increasing the eeriness).
