ATOMIC JOURNEYS explores the secret history of the over 900 Atomic and Hydrogen bomb tests detonated throughout the United States in previously unknown locations as diverse as Mississippi, Colorado, New Mexico and Alaska. Many of these tests were part of two U.S. Atomic Energy Commission nuclear testing projects, dubbed "Plowshare" and "Vela Uniform." The purpose of "Plowshare" was to explore the use of nuclear weapons for so called "peaceful purposes" such as building new canals and harbors. The "Vela Uniform" program was created to detect the seismic signals of nuclear explosions, and to hide these signals as well. Through the use of spectacular, never-before-seen nuclear test footage, ATOMIC JOURNEYS travels to former test sites and examines the physical changes to the environment, the history behind each test and what the test sites are like today. Finally, we will visit the Nevada Test Site, known as the most bombed place on earth. Narrated by William Shatner.
