Vintage Photos From Atomic Bomb Testing Site

This is what ground zero looks like when you're a testing mannequin in the 1950s. These rare photographs were taken by Loomis Dean at an atomic bomb test site in Nevada around 1955, an eerie documentation of the strangeness that went on during the Atomic Age.

Photo caption--"Scorched, male mannequin in suit of dark fabric indicates a human would be burned but alive."

Check out the rest of these photos, and read all about Loomis' documentation of the testing site, at the link to Life Magazine Online below, they're kookier than Kookie Burns!
