atomic bomb testing

An atomic bomb test off Bikini Atoll, July 1946. Test weapons were detonated on the reef itself, on the sea, in the air and underwater. Bikini Atoll is one of 23 islands that comprises the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Dubbed “Operation Crossroads”, the nuclear testing rendered the island and surrounding area uninhabitable due to radioactivity, stemming mostly from caesium-137.
