Bikini - Trauminsel im Sperrgebiet

Gewaltige atomare Explosionen erschüttern 1946 das Bikini Atoll im Pazifik. Die amerikanischen Streitkräfte hatten sich diesen abgelegenen Platz ausgesucht, um die ersten Atombomben nach Hiroshima zu zünden. Ohne Rücksicht wurden bis 1958 im Atoll insgesamt 23 Atombomben getestet, eine Naturkatastrophe gewaltigen Ausmaßes. Heute 60 Jahre später, ist Ruhe eingekehrt. Doch wie sehr konnte sich die Natur des Atolls über-, wie unter Wasser erholen? Ein bislang nur wenig erforschtes Naturparadies ist entstanden.
