What would be the residual radiation levels? im assuming there would be some and if so would it end up putting any of these peoples at risk?
Man this could be such good inspiration to some dystopian game or book or story or whatever. Destruction tourism has been a thing for a while, but I’m picturing a society where somehow big destruction is revered and reveled in. Destructive power is a virtue, and whoever can destroy things the best are the celebrities. I suppose its a bit Mad Max nuclear edition I am thinking of. Wouldn’t be that far fetched if whoever detonated or dropped this bomb yelled “WITNESS ME” right before he did it.
Is that still there?
Edit: and public

You can still get tours today. It’s a day long thing but interesting still.

This is the 1962 Sedan crater so it’s no earlier than that. Because of the radiation it was permeated with (it was a very dirty ground burst), it’s probably no earlier than 1967.
Amazing Pic! Project Sedan has a funny side history because of a typo. Basically the typo called it Project Sudan which led to the US being accused of Nuclear Testing in Sudan in the 1960’s.
