NEVADA TEST SITE
In response to a growing public awareness of the threat of nuclear fallout Pres. Eisenhower introduced the notion of the "clean" bomb. At a press conference on June 5, 1957 he declared that "we have reduced fallout from bombs by nine-tenths." Nevada Test detonations were continuing in order "to see how clean we can make them."
