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.
