The Aftermath (Kilamoko)

Project Blue Book: UK Nuclear Tests and Secret Projects in Australia's Past

In 1952, on the Montebello Islands, the United Kingdom detonated a bomb. The detonation of the Blue Danube atomic bomb was the start of the Blue Code projects. These led the way for Britain to develop thermonuclear weapons. In these lectures, we hope to provide a broader understanding of Australia’s nuclear footprint so we offer you an opportunity to become a nuclear ‘indoctrinee’ and learn how these bombs were made and detonated. We’ll take you step by step through the effects of a one-megaton thermonuclear bomb detonation on Adelaide and explore how nuclear weaponry is changing for future generations. Bookings required by phone or email.
