Heart breaking visualization of how the US (and Russia) voluntarily irradiated themselves during the cold war. It starts out really slow - jumping a head to about 2:30 or 3 minutes in will get you to the much more heated 1950s. It's terrifying to think what the human cost was of this testing - every explosion increased the ambient environmental radiation which lead to things like thyroid failure and cancer.

Another detail that should be called out is that the intensity of these explosions increased dramatically throughout the 1950s and 60s. I did my history thesis (I was a Cold War Studies Minor) around civil disobedience against civil defense (think Duck and Cover) and came to the conclusion that the reason they stopped holding national drills "practicing" for nuclear war was because they realized there was no longer a point - over the years the post-drill reports showed exponentially growing numbers of fatalities and property damage, a bad kind of hockey stick if you will.
