Survival City was built by the Army for Operation Cue. The goal of the test was to observe how houses, shelters, power lines, a radio tower, metal buildings, food, clothing, and actual people would survive at various distances away from a nuclear blast. Mannequins sourced from J. C. Penney, populated the city.
The May 5th 1955 explosion was dubbed Apple-2. The all-clear was finally given at 8:10am.
The 31 kilotons explosion blast area extended 3 miles out from Ground Zero. Approximately 6,000 spectators watched from about 6 miles. Army troops in tanks and trenches were positioned at a mere 2 to 3 miles from the epicenter.
