Abstract: On August 6, 1945, the American military exploded a 13 kiloton atomic bomb approximately 2000 feet above the Japanese city of Hiroshima. It was the first time such a device had ever been used in war, and within seconds, 100000 people were dead or dying. Three days after the Hiroshima explosion, a second bomb was detonated over the city of Nagasaki. Within days, the Japanese government surrendered to the Americans, and the bloodiest war in human history was over.
