Nuke explosions in slow motion

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has released a recently-declassified collection of films depicting atmospheric nuclear weapons tests conducted between 1945 and 1962.

The United States conducted extensive atmospheric testing during those years, and the Laboratory says they were all captured on film by multiple cameras shooting at 2,400 frames per second. By way of comparison, 24 frames per second is used for most video and 4K video will suggest 60 frames per second.

Some stunning images

I don't know whether that's an island, a hill or just a hillock in the mid screen on 'Teapot Turk'. Whatever it is, it gets sheared from the surface and pulverized.
