Closer to Midnight

An absolutely mind blowing video showing every nuclear explosion to have taken place between 1945 and 1998.

Note how South America is the only unaffected continent.

Also note how much Britain bombed Australia and the United States.

And finally note how peppered the world is with bombings - without nuclear war.

The ticking of the months draws an unmistakable connection to the infamous doomsday or nuclear clock. While we face dangers from terrorism and whatnot, note how close we currently sit to midnight, despite the end of the Cold War.
