Description:

This section contains images of the first atomic test and aftermath. On July 16, 1945, at 5:29:45 AM, a light "brighter than a thousand suns" filled the valley. As the now-familiar mushroom cloud rose into the sky, Oppenheimer quoted from Hindu scripture, the ?Bhagavad-gita,? ?Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.? The world had entered the nuclear age. The ?Gadget? had a yield equivalent to 19 kilotons of TNT. ?Fat Man,? the bomb dropped on Nagasaki, was identical in design to the ?Gadget.?
