Japanese artist maps every nuclear explosion since 1945


Via Buzzfeed, this video is a project of Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto. As the months and years between 1945 and 1998 tick away, Hashimoto maps the world's 2,053 known nuclear explosions and traces the expansion of nuclear technology throughout the world.

The video is startling yet neat at the same time. It's also a wonder how any of us survived the Cold War.
