I had read about the hydrogen bomb testing at Bikini Atoll in a National Geographic article (I was a big fan of national geographic) and how the radioactive fallout had affected the nearby islands and people. Well, there is some brilliant stuff here – diary pages of a sailor who handled nuclear bombs and missile warheads. In today’s article, you will find slices of life in a dangerously adventurous profession noted and narrated extremely well.
