The USS Saratoga was in the Operation Crossroads tests as well, survived the first explosion she went through, but not the second. My seventh grade teacher had served on her as an AA gunnery guy, and he used to tell us a tale or two in lieu of actual lessons. I was sad to learn her fate years later. It really was a shame that so many of those ships were destroyed that way.

Operation Crossroads was a nuclear test where the effects of nuclear weapons on warships was tested.

I'm not exactly what you'd call a fan of the tests, myself, as I really believe some of the ships lost in the tests should have been preserved, not to mention it being "the world's first nuclear disaster," but it is what it is.
