Tests at Sandia simulate shock wave conditions nuclear weapons could face


Sandia National Laboratory is showing off its latest tests on nuclear weapons. 

The labs released the video of a blast tube. 

It shows how well nuclear weapons could survive shock waves from enemy weapons.

Sandia just completed a two-year series of tests.

Modelers say the tests help validate computer models of the blast tube’s system.
