The Story Behind The Picture: Peacekeeper Missile Testing

LGM-118A Peacekeeper missile system being tested at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. This is a time-lapse photo showing the paths of the multiple re-entry vehicles deployed by the missle. One Peacekeeper can hold up to 10 nuclear warheads, each independently targeted. Were the warheads armed with a nuclear payload, each would carry with it the explosive power of twenty-five Hiroshima-sized weapons.
