On This Date In 1946, The First Atomic Test At Bikini Atoll 

Watch It Happen

One man feared gravity would be destroyed and everything would fall up.  Another prophesied that when the atomic bomb went off at Bikini, all the water in all the oceans would be turned to gas.  Another thought the bomb would blow a hole in the bottom of the Bikini lagoon and let all the water in the sea run out.

Newsweek July 1, 1946
