Sedan Crater Is An Otherworldly Destination In The Nevada Desert

Nevada played a huge role when it came to understanding nuclear power and how it can be used. Home to what was once known as the Nevada Test Site, it was here that scientists conducted below-ground nuclear tests from 1951 until 1992.  Today, the test sites can only be accessed through the National Security Site Tour and one of the places that are highlighted is the massive Sedan Crater. Considered the largest man-made crater in the U.S., it’s an otherworldly destination that represents Nevada’s fascinating nuclear history.
