Atomic Bomb

Transcript: How did the atomic bomb end the war? On August 9, another B-29, Bockscar, set out for the Kokura Arsenal on the southwest Japanese island of Kyushu. Altogether, the two bombings killed an estimated 110,000 Japanese citizens and injured another 130,000. By 1950, another 230,000 Japanese had died from injuries or radiation. On August 10, 1945, the two blasts had killed more than 150,000 people and injured at least another 100,000. North America nuclear weapon: an explosive device whose destructive power is due to the uncontrollable release of energy from the fission of heavy nuclei, usually uranium-235 or plutonium-239, by neutrons sustaining a rapid chain reaction Two-thirds of Hiroshima was destroyed. Within three miles of the explosion, 60,000 of the 90,000 buildings were demolished. Two fire bombing raids ons Tokyo earlier in 1945 had already killed 140,000 citizens and injured a million more. How did it change the perspective of warfare? What is an atomic bomb? Atomic Bomb of Hiroshima and Nagasaki The number of people died in Hiroshima.... They kind of had no choice to end the war or not. There was so much damage and so many injured people. Everything was destroyed. On August 6, 1945 at 8:15a.m. an American B-29 bomber dropped the bomb on Hiroshima. There was an atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagaski. What happened in August? The number of people that died all together in both places.... Websites The number of people died in Nagasaki.... By:Chloe Copeland The atomic bomb that exploded over Hiroshima killed civilian women and children in addition to soldiers. Hiroshima's population has been estimated at 350,000; approximately 70,000 died immediately from the explosion and another 70,000 died from radiation within five years. Everything was destroyed and there were a ton of people that got killed and injured. Nothing was ever the same.

Transcript:  August 1946 to 1952, some 60,000 people died of radiation poisoning - an average of 8,500 a year. Maybe as many as 200,000 people died as a result of 'Little Boy'  3rd and 4th months some improvement in burn, trauma, and even radiation injuries. But then came secondary injuries of disfigurement, severe scar formations, blood abnormalities, sterility (both sexes), and psychosomatic disorders. The initial death count in Hiroshima, set at 42,000–93,000, was based solely on the disposal of bodies. Affects of the bomb Date: Many people got Leukemia, which is a malignant tumor or cancer of the blood cells, with an excessive overgrowth of young white cells. Consequently, there is a decrease in red cells and platelets, followed by anemia and a tendency to bleed Citations Deaths American leaders, fearing that the Hiroshima bomb might have hardened Japan's will to resist and also that it be regarded as an unrepeatable phenomenon, decided to use a second atomic bomb, the plutonium weapon, the only other one then ready. Some victims were vaporized instantly, many survivors were horribly disfigured, and death from radiation was uncertain, it might not claim its victims for days, weeks, months, or even years. Affects of the bomb Keloid is an overgrowth of scar tissue on the wound surface of a thermal burn during the reparation stage. It forms an irregularly shaped protrusion that resembles the shell and legs of a crab Trueman, Chris. "The atomic Bomb.", n.d. Web. 1 Oct 2012. Trueman, Chris. "The atomic Bomb.", n.d.

They were told the destruction caused was very great . "Counting the death.", 2006. Web. 1 Oct 2012.

Atomic Bomb

Transcript: The Atomic Bomb World War II Deadliest conflict in human history claiming between 50 and 70 million lives The conflict raged from 1937-1945 Involved all the world powers Fighting spread across 3 continents The war became a global effort taking over all economic, industrial and scientific occupations The Decision In the spring of 1945 President Truman received word that the bomb had been tested and exceeded all expectations At this point, it was clear that Japan was close to surrender and would do so in the next 3 months Truman had to choose: wait for them to surrender at the cost of as many as 30,000 soldiers or drop the atomic bomb Aftermath The United States dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 They dropped the second bomb on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 The bombs killed an estimated 200,000 Japanese, most of whom were civilians It is estimated that between 300-500 of those casualties were actually enemy soldiers The Cold War Although the US bombing of Japan is the only use of atomic weapons in history, they changed the face of war forever The US had a choice after WWII to stop production of all nuclear arms and sign a World Wide ban of such weapons They did not, and this launched the US into a 30 year nuclea arms race with the U.S.S.R known as the Cold War Because the U.S.S.R was a communist government, the US was under constant fear of Communist infiltration. This led to several other armed conflicts and the persecution, harassment and deportation of many Americans The Cold War was the closest we have ever come to Nuclear war and potentially could have ended life as we know it Today the threat of nuclear war is a constant issue regarding world affairs The Manhattan Project was started in 1942 to harness atomic energy for weapons The idea was proposed by German scientist who had escaped Germany and said that Hitler had been exploring the same ideas The atomic bomb would become the most powerful weapon man had ever created: more powerful than 20,000 tons of TNT The US saw the conflict as a European problem; they were just beginning to recover from WWI and the Great Depression The US had no choice but to join the conflict in 1941 when the Japanese attacked the US Naval base at Pearl Harbor Hitler and Nazi Germany The U.S. Involvement Manhattan Project Adolf Hitler took power in Germany in 1933 and began to transform the country Hitler had a dream to restore Germany to it's natural state by extending it's borders and increasing military Hitler believed in the superiority of the Aryan race, and as he began to expand Germany's military power he also began wiping out groups of "undesirables" such as Jews, homosexuals, Gypsies and handicapped. The Holocaust claimed the lives of over 6 million Jewish people alone

Atomic Bomb

Transcript: DISAVENTAGES. The radiation caused diseases of the poor Japanese who unfortunately survied the attack. I'm with the death of millions innocents. Economy, poor countries because their means had been destruyed. According to U.S estimates 60,000 to 70,000 people were killed or missing 140,000 were injuried many more were made homeless as a resultn of the bomb. Deadly radiation reached over 100,000. In the blast, thousands died instantly. The blast's shock wave toppled nearly 60,000 structures, and hundreds of fires consumed the rest of the city. Withing seconds of the explosion, up to 80,000 people died. As many 250,000 Japaneses may have died from the two atomic bomb. Inocent people died. He is the completly responsable for the causes in the Hiroshima and Nagasaki and for the deaths of the innocent. Birds caught fire in midflight. Clothing,trees and wooden building exploded into flames. Conclusion Truman always staunchly defended the atomic bombs. Shortening the war, save American lives, and revenge the main reasons he gave for using them. Twenty years after the explosion, the fallot could be felt and still dying survivors continued even exceeded the initial effects were not able to cope with to harmful radioactive effects later. Could have taken another desicion, so it would have saved thousands of lives, of children, women and elderly completely innocent, on the other hand would not have ushered in a technological era with the creation of the atomic bomb. This decision was taken perhaps by the lack of information we had at the time, but because this is created inrreparablesa damage along the story that still affect today macnitud equal to the Japanese population. President Truman made the wrong decision to drop the Atomic Bomb on Japan ? It was the first Atomic Bomb to ever be used, and was not the last. The second Atom Bomb was dropped on Nagasaki which was the final straw in ending WWII . Combined, approximately 128,000 died just due to the massive concussion and explosions caused by the bombs, and about 120,000 suffered from radiation sickness cancer, leukemia, diseases of the blood and skin, damage to the central nervous system and abortions, among many other health problems of whom died afterwards. Blast----40-50% of total energy. Thermal radiation----30-50% of total energy. Ionizing radiation----5% of total energy. Residual radiation----5-10% of total energy. A birth August 1945, atomic energy had gone into history, leaving a door open in the field of nuclear energy to many powerful countries. The desicion to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki shows at least some difference for human life within the larger context of the brutality of WWII.
