Atom Bomb Exploded above Tristan Da Cunha during 1958              

Did a cloud of deadly atomic radiation fall on Tristan da Cunha and Gough Island? Has the population of Tristan da Cunha suffered as a result of the tests carried out nearly 48 years ago? Did radiation from the test adversely affect the mice that have infested Gough Island and since that nuclear explosion have grown to an abnormally large size and are now attacking the unique indigenous birdlife including the Tristan Albatross chicks? Has radiation from that atom bomb contributed to deaths by cancer and the disproportionate number of Tristanians who have and still suffer from asthma?
