    Hi there,

    I have a question, the article: http://www.sonicbomb.com/content/atomic/docs/trapped_by_radioactive_fallout.pdf

    has some fascinating insight into what actually went on during this very scary accident. But what I wanted to know is whether anyone knows at Sonic Bomb where the photos included in the article came from? We at Blink Films are producing a documentary for the National Geographic Channel on the subject and the photo with two scientists inside the blockhouse testing the equipment is interesting. Did these come with the article as printed in 1957 in the Saturday Evening News or were they added later? It seems surprising to me if they were printed in the newspaper in 1957 because I thought images like that might still be classified...? If anyone could help on this one I would appreciate it a lot. Thanks in advance.

    All the best,

    Hi Crispin,

    That document was given to me, I'm have no idea of it's origins.
