"1945-1998" by ISAO HASHIMOTO
Isao Hashimoto: "This piece of work is a bird's eye view of the history by scaling down a month length of time into one second. No letter is used for equal messaging to all viewers without language barrier. The blinking light, sound and the numbers on the world map show when, where and how many experiments each country have conducted. I created this work for the means of an interface to the people who are yet to know of the extremely grave, but present problem of the world."

CORRELATION BETWEEN NUCLEAR ATMOSPHERIC TESTS AND UFO PHENOMENON
Note I have myself established in 1973 in a study sent on Sunday, November 25, 1973, that was received by Mr René Fouéré –then General Secretary of the GEPA, the correlation between nuclear atmospheric tests and the UFO phenomenon, based upon the data published in 1973 by the well-known FOA -FORSVARETS FORSKNINGSANSTALT / NDRI -NATIONAL DEFENCE RESEARCH INSTITUTE, STOCKHOLM, Sweden, and the statistics given by Mr. C.Poher, then privately published by the CNES/GEPAN.
