WWW - Atomic Bomb detonation by Harold Edgerton

Here are incredible pictures of an atomic explosion, taken at of a second credited to Harold Edgerton (Wikipedia too). Unfortunnately, the site hosting the pictures doesn’t seem to have many working links (original site here : nevadasurveyor)
Quote from the site: Automatic Camera situated 7 miles from blast with 10 foot lens. Shutter speed equaled 1/1000,000,000 of-a-second exposure

You’ll find the original pictures (bigger size) in extended here.
