On Mississippi Nuke Tests at the Tatum Salt Dome

Scary. Several atom bombs blown up underground at the Tatum Salt Dome and then they just filled it in with gravel.

SEE: Nuclear Blasts in Mississippi

These are the nuke tests:

  1. Project Dribble  < it wasn’t part of the nuke tests. (Correction)
  2. Project Salmon
  3. Project Sterling

“Nuclear scientists investigated several potential test sites in Mississippi, but finally selected a site just north of Baxterville in Lamar County, about 28 miles southwest of Hattiesburg.  Geologically, the area was called the Tatum Salt Dome, a vast supply of dense salt located about 1,000 feet below ground level. Salt domes deep beneath the surface of south central Mississippi are the dried remains of a sea that covered much of the state in the Mesozoic Era.  The plan was to detonate one nuclear bomb about 2,700 feet down, in solid salt. ”
