Trinity Test - Ground Zero

This footage reenacts the scene at the Trinity Test site. 

The power of the bomb was so awesome (almost four times greater than most of the Manhattan Project scientists had predicted) that its force knocked one observer off his feet (even though he was 5.68 miles away from "ground zero").
