I brought this up in another thread recently, but I was wondering what other people thought about it: In "Jughead", we learn that the US military had come to the Island in 1954 for nuke tests. (This is actually based on real history....the US did do nuclear bomb testing on several small Pacific islands in 1954.) My mind keeps going back to this.....what do you make of the fact that they went to this particular island for the tests? I mean, they wouldn't have just been wandering around the ocean, looking for potential targets, and then stumbled across this island and said "Hey, let's do it here." They would have started by...you know...looking at a *map*. And picking an island that they know about. So does this mean that the Island was actually visible to the outside world back in 1954, and its location was known? Or does it mean that the Island was still hidden back then, but that the US government knew about its existence and tracked it down via the lamppost or something, and their mission there went beyond simply testing the nuke? Maybe they knew there was something dangerous on the Island, so they wanted to nuke it, before it became a danger to the outside world...and the idea that they were just trying to "test" the bomb was a cover story.
