Since World War II more than 2,000 nuclear explosion tests have been conducted around the world of which the former Soviet Union conducted more than 700. The Soviet nuclear tests began in the Semipalatinsk Test Site (STS) in current Kazakhstan. The test site covers an area of 18,500 km2 and is named after the city of Semipalatinsk, which is located approximately 150 km east of the test site. A tot... more
