Summary
This Prelinger Archives film is a 1954 compilation of newsreel stories on atomic weapons testing, civil defense, and nuclear energy. It depicts the following events: Operation "Tea Pot," an atomic test at Yucca Flat, Nevada, with narration that (in a minor departure from other such films) actually acknowledges the dangers of nuclear fallout; the launch of the U.S.S. Nautilus, America's first atomic submarine, from a shipyard at Groton, Connecticut; observations of an underground atomic blast test; air particle sampling and airfield blast tests that highlight the role of the U.S. Air Force in developing defenses and strategy; desert blast tests on fake houses and mannequin families; tests performed at a robotic arm facility, to develop industrial uses for radioactive materials; and biological tests exposing Columbia River fish to radioactivity--characterized as a "safeguard" against ecological damage.
