Caption: Historic image of a nuclear weapon being detonated. This photo was taken at a height of approximately 12,000 feet - 50 miles from the detonation site. Two minutes after Zero Hour, the cloud rose to 40,000 feet - the height of 32 Empire State Buildings. Ten minutes later, as it neared its maximum, the cloud stem had pushed upward about 25 miles, deep into the stratosphere. The mushroom portion went up to 10 miles, and spread for 100 miles.
