“100 Suns” refers to J. Robert Oppenheimer’s response to the first Los Alamos test of the atomic bomb, at which he famously quoted a description from the Bhagavad Gita – ‘a sun brighter than a thousand suns’. This extraordinary book photographically documents one hundred US nuclear detonations from the 215 declared atmospheric nuclear tests conducted by the US between July 1945 and November 1962.
