The mushroom cloud of a nuclear blast at Bikini Atol in the Marshall Islands in July of 1946. The small specks in the water around the blast are U.S. Navy destroyers and other vessels. Shortly after the end of World War II, nuclear test explosions such as this were a real possibility in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. (Library of Congress)
