Atomic Week: 100 Suns by Michael Light

 

100 Suns is a photo book by Michael Light:

100 SUNS documents the era of visible nuclear testing, the atmospheric era, with 100 photographs drawn from the archives at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the U.S. National Archives in Maryland. It includes previously classified material from the clandestine Lookout Mountain Air Force Station based in Hollywood, whose film directors, cameramen, and still photographers were sworn to secrecy.

I think, these are some of the most terrifying and beautiful pictures in science. You can explore the collection here.
