Remarkable photos of the world’s first underwater nuclear explosion

In 1946, the US detonated two nuclear bombs in Bikini Atoll to test the effects of nuclear bombs on naval warships. The second bomb that exploded was named Baker, and it was the first nuclear bomb to detonate underwater. Recently, these rare photographs of the explosion have surfaced, giving valuable insight into the destructive properties of nuclear blasts in general.
