The former island paradise of Bikini Atoll is slowing blooming back to life, 70 years after the United States dropped 23 nuclear bombs on it, including a device in that was 1,times larger than the Hiroshima atom bomb. A team of scientists from Stanford University have been surprised to discover an abundance of marine life apparently thriving in the crater of Bikini Atoll, which was declared a nuclear wasteland after the bombings, with its inhabitants relocated to other islands. Animals studied by scientists in and around the Chernobyl blast showed deformities and mutations, but the Stanford teams initial research suggest the marine life in Bikini may have fared significantly better. Palumbi said to the naked eye the crabs, fish and coral of Bikini Atoll look perfectly normal and healthy, and some of the coral has been around for decades — with evidence it may have begun growing as soon as 10 years after the last bombs were dropped. In a strange way they are protected by the history of this place, the fish populations are better than in some other places because they have been left alone, the sharks are more abundant and the coral are big. It is a remarkable environment, quite odd. Because fish have relatively short life-spans it is possible the worst-affected fish died off many decades ago, said Palumbi, and the fish living in Bikini Atoll today are only subject to low-levels of radiation exposure as they frequently swim in and out of the atoll.
'Quite odd': coral and fish thrive on Bikini Atoll 70 years after nuclear tests

The nuclear testing at Bikini Atoll program was a series of 23 nuclear devices detonated by the United States between and at seven test sites on the reef itself, on the sea, in the air and underwater. The second, Baker , was suspending under a barge. It produced a large Wilson cloud and contaminated all of the target ships. Chemist Glenn T. Seaborg , the longest-serving chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission , called the second test "the world's first nuclear disaster. The second series of tests in was codenamed Operation Castle. The first detonation, Castle Bravo , was a new design utilizing a dry fuel thermonuclear hydrogen bomb.

Operation Crossroads, which had its first big event—the dropping of a nuclear bomb—on July 1, , was just the beginning of the nuclear testing that Bikini Atoll would be subjected to. When the first bomb of the tests dropped, it was the first time since the attacks on Japan that a nuclear weapon had been deployed. Here are three things you might not know about the infamous tests:.
The video clips, recently released by the US government, give a glimpse into the horror caused by 67 nuke explosions detonated in Bikini Atoll and Enewetak Atoll in the Marshall Islands between and Carried out in the early days of the Cold War, the tests included the Castle Bravo bomb which remains the most powerful thermonuclear weapon America has ever detonated. Bravo - nearly three times its predicted power - exposed thousands in neighbouring islands to the radioactive fallout despite the residents in Bikini Atoll being evacuated before the first test in Fallout from the unprecedented explosion - including radioactive particles - spread around the world. US government scientists declared Bikini safe for resettlement in the early s but residents were removed in when it became clear that they were ingesting dangerously high levels of radiation from the contaminated fish, plants and water.
