This picture, taken on Oct. 31, 1952, shows the explosion from the first American hydrogen bomb in the Enewetak Atoll in the Marshall Islands. The Marshall Islands is pressing the United States for more compensation for the damage caused by nuclear tests, officials said on March 26, 2009, after France announced it would pay its own victims. The United States conducted 67 atomic weapons tests on the atolls of Bikini and Enewetak in the Marshall Islands between 1946 and 1958.
