The First Ever Atomic Bomb Was Exploded This Day, July 16, 72-Years Ago — In 1945.
The code name ‘Trinity’ seems ironic, though it is more than likely than Oppenheimer & co. did feel to an extent that they were playing God — given the nature of what they were working.
‘The Gadget‘, the bomb tested on July 16, 1945, was plutonium-based. It was the prototype of the ‘Fat Man‘ bomb detonated over Nagasaki, 24-days later. That was the 2nd nuclear bomb. The first, of course, was over Hiroshima, 3-days prior to Nagasaki. That was an uranium-based bomb. So Hiroshima took place exactly 3-weeks from this day 72-years ago.
