When I was asked in Dec. 2002 whether I fancied going to Bikini Atoll to dive I jumped at the chance….my bank balance is still recovering though!

@CaxiasFreguesia Yes, this is america a lieing, cheating and injust country, how would you like if aliens came one day and said ”we want ur earth for our tests, and will will destroy it eather u like it or not” if u say u will die but we will take you to a new place that u know notihg of? that is what america did to this people and there home for the sake of nuke testing.
The ocean did recover basically because of the surrounding atoll’s reafs, but some fragile corral’s didn’t come back and the island itself is still a waste land ! I hope the military doesn’t do foolish test like thses again !!!!!!
I have artifacts from the Battleship Nagato, taken from her between Alpha and Baker blasts. They are from the engine room, taken by my dad when he was there aboard the DE- Jesse Rutherford. They are for sale, if interested.
I have the book “the Bomb” by Theodore Taylor good book.
i went there with a radiometer and it spiked upon the island.
How far down are the sunken ships? that would be some dive.

Poor King of Bikini, had his home destroyed …
I never said it was wise to eat food stuffs, as their bodies will become filters and storage vessels for cesium and strontium. but I doubt getting it on you is going to be bad, the radiation load per m^2 of soil would actually be very low compared to a diet of contaminated coconuts and crabs. I’m guessing you would never think people live in Ramsar?
LOL!!! i thought that might be over your head!!! The dispaced Bikinians still havent returned.They have had their own tests done with their own hired scientists.The soil is still contaminated dude and not just for planting but a bad thing if it gets on ya.Bikini was never scraped.The US raised the safe level of radiation to pay less compensation which is sadly still in litigation and may be lost as the Bikinians are running out of money.But you go their and keep getting those chest x-rays duude.
perhaps you should watch “The LNT model 1/3 [Nuclear Nighmares]“?
The problem with most of the scientific studies conducted on Bikini Atoll, is that they all assumed a safe level of radiation to be 100 millirems above background levels of radiation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has adopted a standard of 15 mrem above background for cleanups under the Superfund. When the Marshall Islands people came to understand about the EPA’s 15 mrem EPA standard, the 100 mrem standard, regardless of its scientific merits, became all but irrelevant.
no luck required, its as hard as trying to prove a chest x-ray caused lung cancer, and considering the radiation levels in bikini atoll are far lower then a chest x-ray.
good luck with that!
if you get ill it was not from ambient radiation.
And if we are not fine the can we send our health bills to you?
the radiation dose for diving is negligible, just don’t eat anything living their and you will be fine.
Let’s Get Dirty
Thats sweet, I got certified this year and Im planning a couple trips. I really want to try wreck diving, but I’m not too sure if I should take the PADI wreck diving course first.
While working in Kwajalein atoll from July to Nov.2002 at the base there(USAKA),I went on a dive to Prinz Eugen.When I first got there I did not believe it was the Prinz Eugen.I know its history and it is sad to see it where it is now.I only been to the ship on one dive, and made it half way along the ship. The bow is around 104 feet. Also you are not allowed to make entry into the ship anymore.I tried to sit in one of the AAA mounts on the side.I saw shells,and other spent ammo laying around.
i would love to do that but you’d never catch my ass down there!
not much coral after 40years plus. must be the radiation
nice movie 5 stars
