Isao Hashimoto’s extraordinary musical map of every nuclear explosion since 1945.
To the extent there can BE such a thing as an audio infographic, this is it.
This is so cool! And kinda cute, actually. All the dancing, colourful lights and the cute sounds…until you remembered it marked nuclear tests and was horrified when looked at the number of all the nuclear weapons in the world (circa 1998). Predictably, USA is the worst offender in terms of vertical proliferation, though it had destroyed some of its stockpiles in agreement with Russia.
Also, the research behind this project must be truly horrifying *shudders* I mean, looking up all the nuclear weapon states’ date and place of tests, every single one of them? Ew.
