The former island paradise of Bikini Atoll is slowing blooming back to life, 70 years after the United States dropped 23 nuclear bombs on it, including a device in 1954 that was 1,100-times larger than the Hiroshima atom bomb. A team of scientists from Stanford University have been surprised to discover an abundance of marine life apparently thriving in the crater of Bikini Atoll, which was declared a nuclear wasteland after the bombings, with its 167 inhabitants relocated to other islands.

After 70 years, today the beautiful place is blooming back to life. According to a research carried out by a team of scientists from Stanford University, the site which was once all devastated is now, after 70 years, teeming with an abundant ecosystem that includes a variety of plant and animal wildlife.
