Sedan Crater was the result of a thermonuclear test on July 6, 1962. The crater is on the National Register of Historic Places and is in Area 10 on Yucca Flat of the NTS. Sedan subjected more Americans to radiation than any other nuclear test; approximately 13 million people were directly affected, as the contents of the crater drifted on the wind and dropped fallout in 13 states as far away as North Carolina.
Behind the crater on the other side of the mountains is Area 51, the secret test facility run by the CIA.
