Description: The Nevada Test Site in southern Nevada includes an area larger than the state of Rhode Island, and for decades, it was where the United States government conducted its nuclear weapons tests. This website, created and maintained by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) provides materials for the general public about the activities on the site over the past five decades. The materials on the site are divided into five primary sections, including "National Security", "Library", and "Environmental Programs". The "Environmental Programs" area provides reports and documents related to the environmental legacy of historic nuclear weapons related activities and the natural wildlife on the site. The "Library" area contains fact sheets, news releases, and historical documents that talk about the containment of underground nuclear explosions and the origins of the Nevada Test Site. The site is rounded out by a selection of fascinating films that depict historical controlled nuclear tests from the site.
