As compensation, I would give free medical care to the people who inhabit those islands and suffering the after effects.

It is quite beautiful but you have to worry about the after effects.

They did a lot of nuclear testing in the Nevada desert outside Vegas when I lived there as a child.  Most of the radiation blew toward St George, Utah which developed a high cancer rate.. during one such test they were filming a movie with John Wayne, etc... over the years just about everyone who worked on the movie.. Wayne, Susan Hayward, etc., died of cancer.

That film was called "The Conquerors". The entire cast and crew of the film died of cancer. The operation that the United States was conducting was part of the Upshot-Knothole Series and it was a 30 kiloton device known as "Dirty Harry"

Here is a pic of the Upshot Knothole "Dirty Harry" bomb that the cast of "the Conquerors" were exposed to

Odd - I am seeing them both. They both play for me.

Computers are weird.  :shrug:
