Daily Analog Photo - The Atomic Cannon

Among my boxes of slides I found this shot of the "Atomic Cannon".

Which genius thought this was a good idea for the battlefield? Our tax dollars at work back in the good old 1950s.

I found some videos of it in operation. When they tested it I was 7 years old, but well out of range.
Makes one nostalgic for the cold war doesn't it?
