“Getting Ready” looks at nuclear weapons tests of the United States that were
performed in the 1950's as part of the nuclear arms race. The United States conducted around 1,054 nuclear tests by official count, including 216 atmospheric, underwater,
and space tests. As a countermeasure to the lethal effects of nuclear explosions, it is effective to "duck and cover" in the event of a surprise nuclear attack, and during a nuclear attack of which the public has received some warning, which would likely be
a few minutes prior to the nuclear weapon arriving.
