Sixty years ago this day, on March 1, 1954, the United States conducted its first hydrogen bomb test at the Bikini atoll in the Pacific. It was the largest US nuclear explosion ever with a yield of 15 megatons of TNT. The blast was much more powerful than predicted and led to massive radioactive contamination.
