    The Zebra device used highly enriched uranium (Oralloy) in a levitated pit. Despite its lower yield than shot Yoke it was relatively more efficient. The cloud rose straight up for two minutes before veering eastward. Observers stated that the cloud had a hollow appearance and looked like a smoke ring. Eight drone aircraft took part in cloud sampling missions, each making three passes. The drones and samples were found to be more radioactive then the two previous shots. Three men working on removing the radioactive samples from the plane received dangerous beta radiation burns on their hands which required skin grafts.
