In the years after World War II, the Marshall Island’s remote Bikini Atoll was lit up with some of the most powerful nuclear tests ever conducted. These blasts left behind the wreckage of more than 70 Japanese and American warships which rest on the ocean floor to this day.

See our expedition to the Atoll and watch sub team leader Mark Taylor pilot the Nadir submersible to shoot never-before-seen footage of these hulking ghosts of the Nuclear Age.
