    Some photographs of unidentified Soviet nuclear tests

    A awesome aerial photograph of a atmospheric nuclear test (Joe-19??)
    The image appears on the web without any information. In Poligon.kz says ''on the left is a cross which corresponds to where the bomb must have fallen''


    Joe-19 mushroom cloud?


    Tsar Bomba?

    It can't be the Tsar Bomb.

    This allows closer examination of the fireball Wilson cloud:

    Yes this site is great. Some of those pictures seem to be screen shots from film, especially the two pictures in the first post here, one that has the huge wilson cloud, and the orange one with the ring, and the one in the middle, second last row, on the poligon site. Amazing.

    That is badass to see rare Soviet footage. It looks like some of the pictures on that photo site these are ripped from, are stills from films of the tests. Where to find more! I have seen a website about stock Russian/Soviet nuclear test film through a video on youtube, and the video is of the worst quality ever, but you can see many clips of tests that are not on this site or anywhere else for that matter.

    Hello and welcome and thanks for posting this find, a real treasure-trove of material, thankyou.

    revolutionman, the avatar is Joe-8
    To translate text or a webpage, you can use Google

    "Kurchatov (in Kazakh and Russian: Курча́тов) is a town in East Kazakhstan Province in northeast Kazakhstan. Named after Soviet nuclear physicist Igor Kurchatov, the town was once the centre of operations for the adjoining Semipalatinsk Test Site. With the cessation of nuclear testing and the decommissioning of the test site, Kurchatov's population has fallen from over 20,000 to around 8,000.[1] In its heyday Kurchatov (which was known by its postal code Semipalatinsk-16) was a closed city, one of the most secretive and restricted places in the Soviet Union.

    Kurchatov is located on the south bank of the Irtysh River at its confluence with the Chagan River. A railway connects it to the nearby village of Moldary to the west and to Semey 100 miles to the east. [2]

    The nuclear facilities at Kurchatov are managed by the Kazakhstan Institute of Atomic Energy, a division of the country's National Nuclear Center."
