Notice when watching this old newsreel of an atomic test how you basically have a series of 'scenes'....


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38QS11V8caw

... each scene when analyzed individually is not very convincing at all ( a 'crowd flash' scene, a 'close up of smoke' scene, a 'distant three-part Mushroom cloud' scene, a 'fireball' scene etc).

Yet when 'viewed' together you have something which would be more than adequate to fool the majority of 1950's audiences.

I would suggest the neutral researcher ask themselves... does each scene look convincing, in its own right, to them? Using 21st century eyes?

Based on such imagery would you support the theft of trillions of Dollars, Rubles, Pounds, Francs, Euros & Yuan from the pockets of this planets civilians?

Looks as credible as a 3-dollar bill. Is that Charlie Chaplin´s head at 2:38?

Great work, Critical Mass, and thank you for phrasing everything so clearly for the average reader. If this doesn't help wake the average person up about the hoaxing involved in the "nuclear" scare, I don't know what will — except more of your good work!

Hoi,

We are living in a world where Scientists believe you can cause an Earthquake from space & Historians push imagery & damage effects which can not be recreated even when using their own tools.

I thank Cluesforum for being the one place on this bizarre planet where true scientific skepticism can be practiced.


For those interested a 0.1 PSI blast, using the most commonly available tables, must represent a roughly 5mph window rattler...

Image

... lets be nice & call it 10mph.

Only someone as inherently naive & trusting as an ivory tower academic could possibly believe a 10mph wind sent seismic signals 9300km away or collapsed a bomb shelter.


If the neutral researcher agrees that those claims must clearly be false then I ask them this... what other claims about our 'atomic past' have just been lazily accepted by those who profess to be skeptics?

Project Shoal a 'small' 12kt underground nuclear test set off 30 miles away from from the City of Fallon. Here's the test & local residents stating they didn't feel a thing...


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVBKgAdsvUw

Contemporary accounts discuss '200 military witnesses' & seismic records from Berkeley.

Image

Modern accounts like those of Politician, Nuclear Project Chair & Author Michon Mackedon take a different tack.

They help push the 'Nuclear tourism' angle which I've discussed before.

On the day of the test, the public was invited to watch from a distance of about 4 1/2 miles away on State Route 839. A parking area has been made along the highway and next to the road leading to ground zero for the observers and those driving on the highway were stopped just before the blast occurred. Ground zero is just five miles from Sand Mountain.


Another claim from the same article apparently made 22 days later (although I've been unable to verify it)...

Although it was reported that no radiation leaked into the atmosphere during the test, the Fallon Eagle–Standard reported on Dec. 17, 1963 the drillers had encountered temperatures of 600 degrees and radiation that peaked at 40 roentgens per hour.


Either way it's perhaps interesting to know that Michon Mackedon claims that she herself witnessed '5 or 6 atomic tests' from 300 miles away!

He was the head of the construction company, and Fallon had helped pave the roads into the Nevada Test Site, and very much an advocate of atomic testing, and he used to get there were four kids in the family, actually three and the fourth came in ’52, but that’s another story. He used to get us up at the crack of dawn on a day of a “shot,” make the orange juice, make the pancakes, and we’d sit in front of this bay window in Fallon and watch what I call in the book the Southern Sunrise. And, I do remember just the phenomena, the spectacle. I don’t remember much else except that we would go to school, grammar school throughout the Fifties, and everybody would talk about the test at Las Vegas that morning. So, I witnessed, over a distance of some 300 miles, oh, at least five or six of those tests. I can’t remember exactly, but we could see them very well from Fallon, Nevada.

The trouble with 'eyewitnesses'

Is that they're, to be frank, often full of bullshit.

Another Nuke skeptic posted a video tracking whether or not the idea that some people thought Nukes could be a hoax was spreading or not


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKwcqUMCvEQ

At about 0:44 seconds we come across a former RAF man who authoritatively & confidently describes his experiences when he witnessed the H-bomb test at Maralinga in 1963.... feeling the heat on the "back of his legs from 40 miles away".

One might be impressed with such testimony.

Others may point out that there has never been an alleged H-bomb test at Maralinga, the last 'major Atomic test' is alleged to have taken place in 1957 & the only things supposedly taking place at Maralinga in 1963 were High explosive 'dirty bomb' tests.

Former RAF man indeed.

There are several scenes of the Trinity test.

'Distant fireball' with a pan

Image

Distant fireball

Image

Close up of explosion

Image

and 'slow motion close up of cloud above the explosion'

Image

All of these scenes could easily be the result of a large quantity of conventional explosive indeed my suspicion is that they're in fact the 108 tonne test a theory I've discussed previously.

However there is one oddity which annoyed me somewhat & that is the 'slow motion close up' of the 'cloud above the explosion'. It always appeared to me to have been cropped. Supposedly it's meant to be showing us the balloons vaporizing yet why would 'the Directors' have set up their camera in such a way? Cropping a shot is not an easy thing to do with film either... yet the shot was the same in everything I watched official test movies, HD re-releases, newsreels.

I just filed the oddity away as sometimes you can never figure out such things or why these people chose to do it 'that way'.

Yesterday I found this 1945 newsreel and at 2:37 and for the first time I saw the full version of the slow motion scene.


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASmtrCZ5uFs

... what you have here is a normal speed rocket trail followed by a ludicrously slow motion 'atomic fireball'.

Image

Surely not even an academic could believe that you can have both normal speed events & slow motion speed events occurring in the same shot?

Oh & there's clearly no 'barrage balloons' either.

This is definitive proof of media fakery being used for the very first 'Atomic test'. It also appears they attempted to hide this particular mistake... quite successfully of course... at least until now.



PS

There's also another scene of Trinity which I call 'the instant shockwave' but I've never been able to verify it. It only seems to appear in documentaries.

The academic mind is so stunningly naive you sometimes wonder if it is not deliberately deceptive.

Alex Wellerstein on the Nuke hoax (& 'Moon landing')...
For those who are curious: The “all nukes are a hoax” theory seems to stem from a couple different sources. The technical argument is that fast neutron chain reactions are impossible, because the fission cross-section of U-235 is small for fast neutrons. The cross-section is indeed small for high-energy neutrons, which is why reactors use a moderator to slow the neutrons down and increase the likelihood of their capture by the small amounts of U-235 in the nuclear fuel. What is weird is that the people making this argument don’t seem to realize that this is exactly why you use 80-90% enriched material in a bomb — it is to overcome this low probability of fissioning by just putting a ridiculous number of targets in the area. It is also why there are tampers, neutron reflectors, and the like, and also why even a relatively sophisticated weapon like the Fat Man only fissioned something like 13-18% of its fissile material, and the Little Boy bomb only fissioned around 1% of its fissile material. They also have weirdly interpreted the “Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not that different from the firebombing of Tokyo” argument (to a rather absurd conclusion, that it was just a firebombing, despite the fact that firebombing and atomic bombing have really different outcomes), believe that the photographs of the mushroom clouds are all faked (despite the fact that such a level of fakery was really quite beyond the technology of the 1940s — similar to the “Apollo moon hoax,” it would have been easier to make an atomic bomb in the 1940s than to fake an atomic bomb convincingly on film, at least to the degree of documentation that we have on them from the time), and believe that every scientist in the entire world (except for the random engineer who came up with this dumb theory) is in on the secret and has reasons to propagate it indefinitely (and I am apparently in on the hoax as well, to my surprise). The one person I e-mailed with about this, just trying to see what the limits of their rationality were and what it spawned from, eventually let on that to him, one of the most convincing pieces of evidence for this theory is the number of Jews who were involved in the creation of the bomb, wink wink, nudge nudge. This probably hits at the real origin of this bad idea — just another form of mis-matched anti-Semitism grafting itself onto another source. That my last name is a Jewish-sounding one did not apparently resonate with the person e-mailing me.

His opinions can be broken down as thus...

(I) It's mathematically possible, under some models, to construct a working atomic bomb.

(ii) I think he's saying that the fact that Hiroshoma & Nagasaki look like they were firebombed is 'a coincidence'?

(iii) That the fakery was beyond 1940's Technology (and that faking the Moon mission was beyond 1960's technology!)!

(iv) Every scientist including Alex would have to be deliberately 'in on the hoax'... which would obviously be impractical.

(v) Those who see that there are serious problems with the imagery, forensic evidence & eyewitness testimony for our ancestors Nuclear story are 'wink wink, nudge nudge' 'Anti-Semitic'.


I suppose my thoughts on these opinions would be thus...

(I) Has any mathematician trained (or self taught... like most here) in the 'art of deception' actually looked at these models with a critical eye?

(ii) Has he ever once imagined that it might not be 'a coincidence'? Or that not everything he is told about an event is automatically true?

(iii) Hmmm Alex here is clearly unaware that officially travelling matte compositing & 'bluescreen' were available in the 1930's and we've basically always been able to fake photo's. Seeing as how 'films' are just a series of photographs displayed quickly & in sequence there are few limits to what could be achieved given time, money & will.

However, as this forum has pointed out, they clearly made numerous errors easily seen with 21st century eyes.

So with regards to the 1940's 'Atomic events' & evaluating the imagery which we can confidently say came from the 1940's we have...

Trinity discussed in my post above

Hiroshima & Nagasaki... from what I can tell the only thing actually shown in the 40's are the alleged bomb damage effects, various interviews & those 'iconic photos'.

Crossroads discussed here & mentioned here

Eniwetok... the footage was released in the early 50's but let us look at it anyways.


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV5tYx3Esiw

Image

That is an animation layered over a slow motion explosion.

Oh & notice our old favorite, the 'movie white out effect'. As per usual the shadows are completely unchanged by the 'intense new light source'... besides which why are there even 'pre-explosion shadows' anyways? These were supposed to be night tests!

Image


Joe-1... as with Eniwetok the Joe-1 footage was certainly 'released' later. The only thing available in the 1940's were panicked proclamations by Politicians, the Media & 'Scientists'.


All of the 1940's imagery is not only easily fakeable... a lot of it is provably so.


As for his idea that this 1960's transparent travesty would be too expensive to pull off... I would suggest they were being tight with the money & perhaps should actually have hired Kubrik for the job! Compartmentalization though... it's a bitch.


(iv) The implied suggestion here is that 'Scientists' would have to be deliberately 'in on it' because they're far too smart to have been fooled or conned like the rest of us. :rolleyes:

It is this inherent arrogance which makes 'Scientists' the perfect target for a con.

Additionally he's clearly pretending that he's never heard of compartmentalization... which is an odd thing to do for a supposed expert on the 'Manhattan project'.

(v) There's always 'a term' with these people isn't there... they just have to get one of those terms in. 'Conspiracy theorist', 'Anti-Semite', 'Crazy'. Why can that term not be 'skeptic' or perhaps 'someone who can actually use their own eyes & ears'?

Whoever it was that Alex may once have emailed may well have been 'anti-Semitic' in his eyes... they may also have been 'left-handed Buddhists who liked to gamble'. Seeing as how those things are not relevant to the alleged 'Atomic bomb' it would seem rather silly to bring them up. It's such a weak point it barely even counts as ad hominem.

(explosion at 1:14)

In basically all the A-bomb videos you have been posting, the kabooom is heard simultaneously with the initial flash from the explosion, regardless of the distance between "ground zero" and the "camera". The exact same phenomenon (or rather, error) has been pointed out in videos of rocket launches/disasters.
How does "wink-wink" Alex explain that? Was the sound recorded by microphones with wireless transmitters suspended by fire-and-shockwave-resistant balloons right above the blast site? Or was it subsequently "corrected" for the sake of those thick audiences who would never get their minds around the flash-to-bang method anyway?

Lovely closing statement: "...the world´s mightiest agent of destruction presents its unspoken and unanswerable argument for peace [bullying] and for preparedness [guzzling more taxpayer money]".

'Alex the winker' would probably concede himself that virtually all 'atomic bomb test' soundtracks are fake... in terms of reasonable delay you've got the 1953 'Annie' test (uploaded by Wellerstein himself) &, err, that's it.

I suppose you could argue we've also got the 'live' TV footage of an 'atomic bomb test' but, I don't know about you, I can't hear no bang.


PS

I emailed Wellerstein at the same time I posted on Cluesforum... his only response is to point you Flabbergasted at his 'Sound of the bomb' article, try & make a rather irrelevant case about the Eniwetok tests supposedly taking place in what he calls the 'early morning' & he gave me the old...

"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence"

... a quote which is basically a Cluesforum motto & something we all agree with.


Interestingly I decided to re-review the 'Declassified U.S. Nuclear Test Film #03' which covers the Sandstone operation.

There's nothing particularly convincing... a flash here, a shot of a 'cloud in the sky' there, a slow motion explosion or two, a radioactive robot plane... the usual.


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOs3Qx09ZI0

I did notice however that at 16:04 the imagery which nowadays has been alleged to be the 108 tonne test imagery is in that 'official movie' described as Trinity footage.

My favorite quote from the official test movie...

"These were fabricated releases of power"

Excellent work, Critical Mass! "These were fabricated releases of power", indeed :rolleyes:

Interesting that "Alex the Winker" [Wanker] should misuse that “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” quote — doesn’t he realize the burden of proof lies with the claimant (i.e. the State & its advocates/gatekeepers), not the disbelievers?

Also interesting is his non-committal reply to a posting of what must be the most ridiculous “test” footage of all in the comment section:

Oh yeah, what a fauxto! It has to be seen full size to really appreciate the [bull-]artistry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Crossroads
Baker. The bomb, known as Helen of Bikini, was detonated 90 feet (27 m) underwater on July 25, 1946. Radioactive sea spray caused extensive contamination. A third deep water test, Charlie, planned for 1947, was canceled primarily because of the United States Navy's inability to decontaminate the target ships after the Baker test. Ultimately, only nine target ships were able to be scrapped rather than scuttled.

Published on Mar 15, 2014

Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie is a 1995 American documentary film directed by Peter Kuran and narrated by William Shatner. Using restored archive footage, the film traces the development of nuclear weapons and their testing, from America's Trinity test of 1945 (hence the title) to the first Chinese atomic bomb test in 1964. Kuran's commentary on the DVD version claims that the DVD replaces some of the original footage with better-quality versions. There are some short special effects sequences too. The film has also since been released on Blu-ray.

For those interested the '5 men under ground zero' footage is supposedly from the 'John' test of Operation Plumbbob 1957


The official 'Operation Plumbbob' movies also feature one of my favorite 'compression artifacts'... a transparent mushroom stem

One of the things that Academics love about Nuclear bombs is the quantity of evidence... each particular item of evidence may not be of a particularly great quality but the sheer quantity of stories does seem pretty overwhelming*.

One of Alex 'the winker' Wellerstein's pet projects is his 760mb 'District History of the Manhattan Project'... a large archive of mostly mundane documents dealing with items as far ranging as press releases, experimental equipment, purification techniques, the width of roads needed for Oak Ridge, personality clashes between technicians & enlisted men etc

It appears never ending.

Nonetheless I've begun giving it a perusal & have come to learn of a few thing I had never heard of before. So I thought I might share some of them.

Alexander P. de Seversky

His wiki article does not mention this but apparently he was involved in a bit of a 'controversy' in 1945-46 over his readers digest article regarding Hiroshima & Nagasaki. You can read 'Atomic Bomb Hysteria' here.

Apparently he aired his views at a 'Senate special committee on Atomic energy' in February 1946 but, as the Manhattan History puts it, "his statements were disproved by citation of facts & figures". (B1V04C06 page 45)


I learned from the same document (on page 18) of a new symptom of atomic bombing... have you guys ever heard of this one?
Because of the peculiar psychology or the Japanese who wanted to please the interrogator one must view with suspicion a good deal of the information gathered by subsequent parties on the location of survivors at the time of the explosion, for the number of unscathed survivors from the center increased with time. Actually the shock of the experience frequently caused annnesia in survivors and very few near zero escaped lethal gamma ray exposure.



From a press release for New Mexico I learned of the "blind girl near Albuquerque" who saw the flash of the Trinity test & exclaimed "What was that!" (B1V04C08P01 page 26)

Funnily enough snopes has an article on this & determines it to be 'not quite' true... Gee, ya' think!


I also learned that this was said of the 1946 Bikini Atoll 'Operation Crossroads' tests (B8V03C08 page 5)...
It has been truly said that the operation was the most observed, most photographed, most talked of scientific test ever conducted. Paradoxically, it may also be said that was the most publicly advertised secret test ever conducted

... which both reminded me of that other 'most documented event in history' and made me wonder why we have so little footage of the tests nowadays? We basically have the official test movie & a few dodgy photos.



BONUS CLIP

I've as yet been unable to verify when this was meant to be... still it is clearly an HD 're-release' of something.

* It perhaps should be noted however that during WW2 officially a huge quantity of deception was officially conducted for instance FUSAG, The 'Ghost Army', Operation Mincemeat.
