Fallout is the residual radiation hazard from a nuclear explosion, so named because it “falls out” of the atmosphere into which it is spread during the explosion. It commonly refers to the radioactive dust created when a nuclear weapon explodes.

This radioactive dust, consisting of hot particles, is a kind of radioactive contamination. The weapon yielded a force three times as large as its designers had planned or anticipated. 1 The radioactive fallout cloud that resulted from the weapon would kill a fisherman located km away, cause illness in hundreds and perhaps thousands of people across hundreds of miles, and contaminate entire atolls with high levels of radiation.
