What did the US test in 1945 at Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Nothing.

The first postwar nuclear tests were the two Operation Crossroads shots in the summer of 1946 in the lagoon of Bikini Atoll. They were copies of the Fatman bomb dropped on Nagasaki and were done to test effects on Naval warships of weapons of known design and yield. The Navy was very skeptical of the ability of the new weapon to disable state of the art warships and the first bomb seemed to confirm their opinions (however this bomb was an airdrop and a mistake by the bombardier caused the bomb to significantly miss its AP) reducing the blast on the ships. But the second bomb was an underwater shot that threw ships up in the air, sunk several instantly, and so significantly contaminated many others that the Navy was unable to clean them enough to make it safe for sailors to man and operate them, so the Navy had to scuttle them. This resulted in the cancellation of the planned third bomb which was to have been an underwater shot in deep water outside the atoll. In 1962 a similar yield deep water shot was rescheduled in Operation Dominic in the Pacific southwest of San Diego.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

"Currently Marshall Islands coins are valued at or below their face value when bought and sold in the US coin market. The basis for their currency is the US dollar. This was only based on the US dollar and is not redeemable in the US. The coins are rarely redeemable at face value even on the islands. These coins were intended for collectors, not for widespread use as currency."

Officially, the Republic of Marshall Islands is an independent nation in free association with the United States. In practical reality, the Marshall Islands are a self-governed protectorate of the US. Over half of the Marshall Islands GDP comes from US aid.

Before 1944, the Marshall Islands were controlled by a series of European colonial powers; Spain, Germany, and Japan. During WWII, the United States Navy bombarded Japanese facilities in the Marshalls, and occupied the islands in 1944. In 1947, the Marshalls and many other formerly-Japanese controlled islands became the Trust Territories of the Pacific Islands under the auspices of the United Nations. The Republic of Marshall Islands became quasi-independent in 1986.

Asked by Wiki User

The distance between Honolulu, Hawaii and the Republic of the Marshall Islands is approximately 2500 miles. In order to get there you either need to go by boat or fly to Guam then do some short ranged island hopping to finally get to the Marshall Islands. There are also direct flights from Waikiki to Majuro.
