Operation Sandstone, the third American series of atomic bomb tests (tests number 6,7 and 8) at the Enewetak Atoll (sometimes spelled Eniwetok or Eniewetok) in Marshall Islands,Pacific Ocean. Shows development of an atomic test site at the Enewetak Atoll. American personnel dressed in protective suits perform tests and scavenge wreckage on the Eniwetok Atoll. View of men at the shore and distant convoy of U.S. ships at the horizon. An aerial view of the atoll. American army officials map the operation, back at home. Shows unloading of supplies at the shores of Enewetak atoll. Areas are cleared of trees and foliage. Coral soil is leveled by machines. Cement and tar added to harden the surface. Men detonate underwater obstacles. Aerial view of a causeway joining the two islands. Shows tent city for living quarters and quonset supply huts on the island. Workers build cubes of reinforced concrete. Tower in the middle of the lagoon. Man lays underground cables. View of a tower holding fissionable material on the island. Scenes of American scientists working in the Atomic Energy Commission laboratories, exterior of an American university and Mexico's desert.
Deployment of atomic security and testing measures in Enewetak Atoll in the Marshall Islands (sometimes spelled Eniwetok or Eniewetok) before the Operation Sandstone atomic bomb tests. Exterior of the Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago, Illinois. U.S. Atomic Energy Commission laboratories in Los Alamos,Oak Ridge, Hanford and Brookhaven. American flag post and a distant tower (Zero Tower) on Eniwetok Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Loading unloading of cargo at shipyard in Long Beach,California. Convoy of U.S. ships heads for Enewetak. Scenes of men aboard the ships. U.S. troops in Eniwetok Atoll deploy security measures and plant testing and recording instruments near the Zero Tower. Several types of photo cameras in a workshop . Troops mount high speed cameras on an aircraft.
Wounded U.S. Marines on the beach in Eniwetok Island (sometimes spelled Eniewetok or Enewetak). Blood plasma being administered to wounded soldiers in open field and camp. Dead U.S. Marines. View of Eniwetok Island after battle. Men sitting on the beach and swimming. Dead Japanese soldiers. Damaged Japanese equipment including tanks. Bomb craters on the air strip are filled. Native people of the island. U.S. Marine prepare to leave the island. A marine pats a dog. U.S. Marine leaving the Eniwetok Island.
Battle of Eniwetok during World War II. United States Ship Battleship USS Nevada (BB-36) at Eniwetok Atoll (sometimes spelled Enewetak or Eniewetok) in the Marshall Islands. Stern view of hospital ship USS Solace (AH-5) in the pacific. Bombardment by the United States forces. Water splashes due to bombardment. Officer of United States looks at the artillery bombing by telescope. Troops on deck. Landing Craft Vehicles (LCV) are lowered from ship. Troops on LCV.

Covers events relating to Operation Greenhouse. Scenes of American personnel working on the test islands of the Enewetak Atoll (sometimes spelled Eniwetok or Eniewetok). View of various bomb proof reinforced test buildings. Several scenes including man building wooden structure, Zero Tower, vessel in water and master control station. Men prepare to leave Eniwetok Atoll. Scientists and technicians make a last minute inspection of all the necessary instruments before leaving the island. Ships loaded with men move to safer water. Men prepare to trigger the atomic bomb on the Eniwetok Atoll. The bomb explodes resulting in a high mushroom shaped atomic cloud. Men of Los Alamos return home after a successful mission.
Covers the events just after the atomic bomb test (Operation Sandstone) on the Enewetak Atoll (sometimes spelled Eniwetok or Eniewetok) in Marshall Islands. Atomic cloud generated after the atomic explosion moves away from the atoll. Unmanned B-17 planes that have collected valuable traces of the atomic cloud are made to land. Radioactive data is collected from the B-17s by remotely operated forceps. A tank, remotely controlled from a helicopter,digs out sand to collect samples on the Enewetak Atoll. Men dressed in protective clothing search the rubble on the atom blasted island. Valuable data is collected from the island and sent to the laboratories in America for analysis. Scientists perform analysis of the collected data, helping in the further development of atomic energy.
