How I learned to stop worrying and love hydraulic fracturing

Speaking of fracking and media reporting. Just another anniversary.  46 years ago tomorrow the government conducted a test.  Think fracking is new?  Worried there is not enough water for sustained shale development? There are other ways to frack the natural gas out of shale?  Once it was done with nuclear detonations.

December 10, 1967:  Project Gasbuggy.

Reported in the media a 'a good start'

The strangest stories are always true. Hunh, it makes the natural gas radioactive, who would have thunk?

And at that time they were talking about using nukes to blast a new Panama Canal. They were trying to come up with something to peacefully use nukes.
