n 1963 and 1964, at the height of the Cold War, tensions were high between the United States and the Soviet Union, as both nations stockpiled tens of thousands of nuclear devices.

Both countries had signed a treaty to stop testing nuclear devices on the surface or underwater, but the treaty did not cover underground tests.

Scientists didn't know if underground tests could reliably be detected by seismographs, so they did the only thing they could to find out: they detonated two nuclear devices deep underground in Mississippi.
Mississippi eh?

Anywhere near Stennis Space Center?
