Do you want to play a game?

Unfortunately this isn’t the movie War Games. The video link below (WordPress won’t let me embed it) is an amazing animations of all the nuclear explosions that took place up to 1998.  It is a bit slow until the 50’s, then it really does look like the scenarios that WOPR simulated in the movie.  I had no idea that that many warheads were set off and I find it a bit amazing that all those had to be detonated.  Was this research or were we just showing off?
