„The mushroom growing out of the Text A [Able, Anm.] explosion in air has now reached an altitude of fi ve miles. Veiling the mushroom top is the ice cap, or scarf cloud, believed to be composed of myriad tiny ice crystals. The mushroom itself is a mixture of vapor, smoke, soot, and radioactive fission products.“ (zit. nach: William S. Shurcliff, Bombs at Bikini.
