This might look like some kind of microscopic organism, but it’s actually a high-speed photograph of a nuclear explosion. It was captured less than 1 millisecond after the detonation using a rapatronic camera. the photograph was shot from roughly 7 miles away during the Tumbler-Snapper tests in Nevada (1952). The fireball is roughly 20 meters in diameter, and 3x hotter than the surface of the sun.

Atomic bomb explosion at the Nevada Proving Grounds, revealing the incredible anatomy of the first microseconds of an atomic explosion; this ominous fireball was documented in a 1/100,000,000-of-a-second exposure, taken from seven miles away with a lens ten feet long. Circa 1952
