Today in history - September 22, 1983


After the end of World War II, the steppes of Kazakhstan became the scene of nuclear weapon testing by the Soviet Union. Tests were later conducted in one of most remote places on Earth – the mountainous Russian archipelago of Novaya Zemlya, as well as in the Urals and at the Missile Test Range area in Kazakhstan.

More than 300 test explosions were conducted underground after 1961. Semipalatinsk's Degelen Mountain nuclear test facility was the largest underground nuclear test site in the world, consisting of 181 separate tunnels. Between October 1961 and October 1989, 224 tests were conducted there.
