Not that it will happen. Then again, what’s the harm in applying for the relevant permits? The worst they can do is say no.

  1. Moe, I do not think there is a permit process for ‘explosion of a nuclear weapon.’ That is something pretty much everyone just DOES.

    1. Yeah, but there’s a monopoly on ownership. Which is fine, BUT: God damn it, my tax dollars pay for those things. There should be a process for the safe non-governmental use of them.

      1. We only just got the background level of radiation down to the point where we don’t have to keep salvaging chunks of World War I german ships to build Geiger counters. I don’t think it is a good idea to increase the background radiation level just to make a movie.
        That said, there are probably lots of nuclear scientists who would love to sacrifice high quality cameras for the sake of better understanding how nuclear bombs work. If the footage happens to get used in a biopic about an early nuclear scientist I doubt they will complain.
