apocalypse stories

The "Atomic Age" of the 1950s saw the nuke-armed U.S. and U.S.S.R facing off. During the creation of the bomb, the U.S. didn't give much thought about what would happen if one headed our way. It seemed like a good idea to the government to a thorough testing as to what would happen in that event.
It's comforting to know that when the apocalypse does happen, we can repopulate the Earth from the survivors tucked safely away in their luxury condos deep inside a retired missile silo in Kansas. Interest in the "Survival Condo" has been so high that all units in this unique complex 174 feet deep in the Earth have sold out at cost of a cool $2 million apiece.
