Nevada has had over 900 nuclear tests, with the earliest hundred above ground.  What would one more matter?

If you have seven minutes, I'd recommend watching this visualization of the nuclear tests performed through the 20th century.  I've enjoyed using it with my students, pausing occasionally, to get their sense as to when they think there's been "a lot" of tests.

This is why they scaled back atmospheric atomic testing in Nevada - because the prevailing winds was blowing the dust over most of continental US. Physicists working for Kodak discovered the pollution half the country away.
