Over 2,000 Nukes

Since 1945 to 1998 there have been slightly over 2,000 nuclear warheads detonated by various countries.  What I am not intending with this post is a debate on the effects the nuclear detonations have had on Earth.  What I am interested in is the number of tests done.  I had no idea that the various countries that have tested or used nuclear weapons was in excess of 2,000 times.  I knew countries had done testing over the decades since the advent of nuclear weapons but like I said above did not know to what extent.

I just thought it was an interesting fact regarding the history of the nuclear weapon and figured would pass it on.

Over at the links you can see a video that shows all the detonations on a map between 1945 and 1998 and on second link a map showing all the detonations.

I originally found this information from this Crooks and Liars post: We’ve Already Nuked Ourselves Over 2,000 Times
