AtomCentral shows us some incredibly clear HD footage restored from 1953 of the Atomic Cannon test from Upshot-Knothole Grable. Identified also are the various vehicles on the desert floor, which were very tiny in comparison to the fireball from the blast. The frame illustrates the numerous test vehicles, such as cars, jeeps, buses and tanks, that were used to demonstrate the effects of the atomic bomb.

AtomCentral is a division of Visual Concept Entertainment (VCE), which began in 1982 after founder Peter Kuran finished work as animation supervisor for Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) on George Lucas' The Empire Strikes Back.

Peter Kuran started his career in 1976 working as an animator on the original Star Wars movies. As an animator on Star Wars, Kuran introduced the concept of animating shadows and interactive light to objects to make them appear more interactive.

Since then, Peter and Visual Concept Entertainment have worked on over 300 theatrical motion pictures including both "Addams Family" films and all three "Robocop" features. VCE work was seen in "Men In Black", "The 6th Day", "Thirteen Days", "A Beautiful Mind," "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," "X-Men 2," "The Last Samurai" and most recently "Company Men."
