I'm guessing that it's not in the US because I see the guy without a shirt, which OSHA would never allow. I see bottles and what looks like someone in welder's gear. Malaysia?

It's the Mike Device, the first fusion bomb, tested in Operation Ivy. Those guys aren't wearing shirts because it's hot in the Marshall Islands.
