underground test


Cannikin was detonated on November 6, Amchitka island, Alaska, 1971. It was the largest underground nuclear test in US history. The ground lifted 20 feet caused by an explosive force almost 400 times the power of the Hiroshima bomb. The explosion caused a seismic shock of 7.0 on the Richter scale, causing rockfalls and turf slides of a total of 35,000 square feet Though earthquakes and tsunamis predicted by environmentalists did not occur, a number of small tectonic events did occur in the following weeks, thought to be due to the interaction of the explosion with local tectonic stresses.

anonymous asked:

what's 'martrys' about?

BOY HOWDY. Okay so first thing to know about martrys is that you have to watch the French original. The English remake is terrible. The acting is terrible and they change the plot a bit. Second thing to know is that it’s VERY graphic. Like super graphic. But to put it in simple terms. It’s about two girls. One girl is recently escaped from an underground group testing the limits of the human body. The second girl (who has a crush on the first girl: but it’s not really a MAJOR plot point) is trying to help her through the trauma and get revenge on the man who originally took her hostage. The second girl ends up kidnapped as well and the plot develops from there. The ending is stunning and terrifying and there’s a lot of great cinematic moments too. ita one of my all time favorites
