Atomic Bomb Explodes on Hiroshima ca. 1945

On August 6, 1945, U.S. forces dropped an atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima in southwestern Japan. The bomb, which contained 12.5 kilotons of explosive power, killed 72,000 civilians and caused damage on a scale unequalled by any prior human-made bomb in history.

Ultimate Weapon: Oppenheimer and the Atomic Bomb

Loading...
"J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Father of the A-bomb, creates the world's deadliest weapon of mass destruction--with the "power of 1,000 suns" it can annihilate tens of thousands in a moment. His scientific brilliance is the power behind the atom bombs used against the Japanese during WWII, but his conscience led him to question the invention that helped end the war. Watch as Oppenheimer paces anxiously in New Mexico while the crew on a B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, deploys the massive "Little Boy" bomb towards the Aioi Bridge in Hiroshima.
