1/100,000,000ths of a second shutter speed nuclear explosion!

Shamelessly stolen from another forum, this is what a nuke looks like in the first microseconds :

Pretty impressive - truly chance in a life time, would love to see a pic of the actual setup, especially the 10 foot lens. Also wonder if it survived or if its purpose was just to get the shot before being buffeted to hell by the shockwave.

Imagine if it had jammed or he'd left his lenscap on

Most likely ran about the 7 miles of film through the camera before he knew it was happening! I always knew a long lens had its uses.
