Buses arriving in the dark. People milling about waiting for the tests to begin. Men in hard hats. A ma in a truck with a sign on the windshield reading ‘Casualty Control’. Civil defense volunteers entering a trench. People drinking coffee and waiting on Media Hill. A loud speaker. People pulling on their goggles. Shots of the houses, mannequins, oil tanks from the test site during the countdown to the explosion. A bright flash illuminates the spectators. The mushroom cloud from a distance. A thick layer of dust rolls over the test site, after which the houses are decimated.
