The Nevada Test Site (no pictures allowed). We get an amazing full day tour of the Nevada atomic test site, with visits to the locations of historic tests at Frenchman and Yucca Flats. We visit the Sedan Crater, a test site for the use of nuclear explosives to excavate harbors and construction projects. The Sedan blast created a crater 390 m (1280 ft) wide and 100 m (320 ft) deep, and is visible from space.
