On the 6th of august 1945, a boeing b29 superfortress took off from the tinian island in the pacific carrying an awesome new weapon weighing almost 10,000lbs and containing 140lbs of deadly uranium 235.
The bomb was code-named little boy, the target for the mission, hiroshima.
The bomb load was released over it's target at 0915 hrs at an altitude of 31,000 feet.
Little boy exploded 800 feet above the target with the equivalent force of 20,000 tons of t.n.t.
Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds......
Always puts a shiver down my spine listening to that.
