Little Boy

Transcript: "Little Boy" atomic bomb at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Many of the wounded in the atom bomb attacks would die in the coming days, months and even years due to radiation exposure and burns.

The Enola Gay dropped the "Little Boy" atomic bomb on Hiroshima(5 air crafts ground crew with mission commander). Research When constructed in 1945, the "Little Boy" on display was an operational weapon, but it has been completely demilitarized for display purposes. To meet the project's needs, enriched uranium production began at a new facility in Oak Ridge, TN in early 1943 photo frame The Atomic Bombs Attack Citations (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr Assets map Works Cited Brainstorm

Little Boy

Transcript: The most powerful weapon ever designed. The most concentrated release of explosions ever. 40 million pounds of TNT. Weighs about 9,000 pounds. Heavily loaded. When the bomb hits it will burn at 1 million degrees Celsius and will be 10 times brighter than the sun. President Harry Truman 33rd President of the United States Saw the ending of WWII Decision to use the bomb was last minute He gave orders on August 3, 1945, but due to the weather, bomb wasn't dropped until August 6. Did not truly understand the impact the bomb would have but did know it would bring an end to the war. Truman has his speech prepared and ready to read but has left the city blank, as the crew doesn't know what city it will drop the bomb on until they are in the air. Enola Gay Consisted of a 12 man crew Named after pilot Col. Paul Tibbets' mother Tibbits is given 12 cyanide capsules just before takeoff, one for each crew member, because this is so secret of a mission and if the plane is shot down every crew member faces torture and possible execution and these would take less than 10 seconds to kill painlessly. Two other B-29s accompany the Enola Gay: Great Artiste is carrying scientific instruments, the Necessary Evil carries specialist observers, while the Enola Gay carries the bomb. Hiroshima, Japan Had not been affected by the war yet. Had never been bombed. It is a perfect cloudless day, and the city is alerted to the air raid and sees the B-29s. No one reacts because this has happened many times before and they were never bombed so no one pays attention. When the Enola Gay went flying overhead, locals did not take cover, as they had seen many planes pass by without ever being bombed. They had no idea what was about to happen. There were 3 other designated targets just in case. Three weather planes will fly one hour ahead to each target, the weather chooses the target, and on this day it was Hiroshima. Of this day, reportedly only 5 photos were taken and survived. "Little Boy" Video on Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Fuel: Highly enriched uranium; "Oralloy" Uranium Fuel: approx. 140 lbs; target - 85 lbs and projectile - 55 lbs Target case, barrel, uranium projectile, and other main parts ferried to Tinian Island via USS Indianapolis Uranium target component ferried to Tinian via C-54 aircraft of the 509th Composite Group Efficiency of weapon: poor Approx. 1.38% of the uranium fuel actually fissioned Explosive force: 15,000 tons of TNT equivalent Use: Dropped on Japanese city of Hiroshima; August 6, 1945 Delivery: B-29 Enola Gay piloted by Col. Paul Tibbets The little Boy Fat Man The Little Boy was smaller than the Fat Man but caused many more deaths. After dropping the Fat Man on Nagasaki, Japan surrendered because they thought the US had another bomb to drop. Click to add text This bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan on August 9th, 1945. It weighed 10,800 pounds, was 10ft 8in long, with a diameter of 60in. It had the same blast force as 21,000 tons of TNT This was also dropped by the Enola Gay. Impact on the War Weight: 10,800 lbs Length: 10 ft 8 in.; Diameter: 60 in. Fuel: Highly enriched plutonium 239 Plutonium Fuel: approx. 13.6 lbs; approx. size of a softball Plutonium core surrounded by 5,300 lbs of high explosives; plutonium core reduced to size of tennis ball Bomb Initiator: Beryllium - Polonium All components of Fat Man ferried to Tinian Island aboard B-29's of the 509th CG Efficiency of weapon: 10 times that of Little Boy Approx 1.176 grams of plutonium converted to energy Explosive force: 21,000 tons of TNT equivalent Use: Dropped on Japanese city of Nagasaki; August 9, 1945 Nuclear Weaponeer: Cdr. Frederick Ashworth Delivery: B-29 Bockscar piloted by Maj. Charles Sweeney the fat man By Michael Miller and Matthew James who: the little boy and the fat man were atomic bombs the were dropped in 2 cities in japan, hiroshima and Nagasaki, that inturn caused japan to srrender to the U.S. and drop out of the war.
