The 3 "D"s that I just stated make atomic power look cruel. Misleading because in fact atomic energy is very clean and extremely useful. There are, however, many questions tobe answered in atomic energy. Like, for example, how does it work What are its major uses and how did it come about And most importantly, what is the reality of the " Danger" we o...

    The Bomb Was Dropped Today is the day after the mass destruction of Hiroshima. On Monday, August 6 th the first atomic bomb to be used in war fare was dropped. The atomic bomb "Little Boy " as they called it was drooped at approximately 8: 15 am Japanese standard time. The B-29 Bomber "Enola Gay" was the one to have dropped the atomic bomb yesterday which caused mass destruction. When the bomb reached approximately 2, 000 feet above the surface it was detonated. Reports say that "Little Boy" ca...

    Manhattan Project II. The Race for the Bomb The theoretical possibility that an explosion could be brought about by atomic fission became known in 1939, the year that war broke out in Europe. Scientists discovered then that uranium atoms can fission when struck by neutrons to split other atoms in a chain reaction, releasing large amounts of energy. Two Hungarian physicists who had recently emigrated to the United States, Leo Szilard and Eugene Wigner, alerted the US government to the possibility...

    The A-Bomb The effects of the atomic bomb were terrible. There's no doubt in my mind that the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a costly mistake. Atomic bombs produce heat millions of degrees high and visible ultraviolet rays. Everyone and everything exposed to their blast is affected. No one is left untouched, whether it be emotional or physical; in many cases both. However, many members of the science community argue that the atomic bomb was a great advance in technology, and...

    The Atomic Bomb Controversy August 6, 1945- the atomic bomb was first used in combat as it was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. The raw explosive power of the weapon was displayed. Within a few days, another bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan. The atomic bomb was one of the most destructive weapons of war ever used in combat. The bomb was the weapon that ended the second World War. However, the bomb s use was a source of debate. President Harry Truman decided to put many years of nuclear warfare r...

    When the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima Japan and then another on Nagasaki in 1945, the world began to change in many ways. The initial reaction to this deadliest of all weapons was one of great fear, but this was not the only reaction. Atomic energy was the most powerful source of energy man had harnessed to date. The five years following the dropping of the atomic bombs were a confusing time when people didn t know what to think of the fact that atomic energy had been harnes...

    In July 1945, 150 atomic scientists were polled by the directors of the Manhattan Project (the group has directed the making of the first atom bomb). They were asked whether and how the weapon should be used against Japan. The dropping of the atomic bomb was very hard decision for Americans. President Truman made a correct, even excellent choice of using the atomic bomb as military weapon on Japan. US showed to world that only we had very strong atomic weapon. Also, we wanted Japan to surrender ...

    Through the centuries, man has tried many attempts in inventing a mass killing mechanism. Alas, in 1945, such a mechanism was created. The atomic bomb was created after many years of the study of atoms. Finally, a way to split the atoms was born. Germany was the first to try, using uranium-235 to make a bomb. They discovered nuclear fission in late 1938. Efforts failed, but were picked up by the United States. Albert Einstein, although credited as the father of the atomic bomb, only lent suppor...
