Not what you might think... if you're looking for photos of ladies on the beach. Bikini Observations and Their Significance by Haradan Pratt and Arthur van Dyck Official United States Scientific Observers I came across this interesting paper, while surfing a 1947 edition of Electrical Communication, looking for a particular paper. It discusses the testing of nuclear bombs, which took place at Bikini Island, 1946. Some of the recent threads here in the Green Room discussing nuclear power, leaking nuclear plants, and the effects of radiation, made me think some of you might find this historical perspective interesting. Of course, in 1946-47, they were just beginning to realize some of the dangers of radiation poisoning, etc. edit - I tried to upload the file (I had PDF'd just the pages of interest), but it was too large. You'll have to view it at this link. Sorry it is a large file.
