Shocking Facts About Nuclear Accidents, Radiation, and Enormous Radiation Releases in Utah and Nevada



RADIATION TESTING

Radiation testing not only included nuclear bomb tests, but also radioactive dust spread by cluster bombs, smoke generators and airplane drops. Eight tests simulating intentional meltdowns of nuclear reactors also occurred in Utah. When the winds out of Nevada blew toward Utah, the nuclear testing began.
