Bombing of Hiroshima The Devastation Caused by the Atomic Bomb The atomic bomb turned Hiroshima to rubble The atomic bomb caused massive human casualities As the atomic bomb exploded over the city Hiroshima, a massive amount of energy was released destroying everything in its path. The energy released in the atomic explosion was of such magnitude and in such a small area that it caused total disintegration of everything in its blast radius. What wasn't destroyed by the energy of the blast, was burned by the ball of fire created by the atomic reaction. The flash of heat was so intense, scientists estimate it to be millions of degrees centigrade at its core. At the time of the blast, almost 100,000 people died immediately. Tens of thousands more died in the months following due to sickness and starvation. People on the fringes of the blast suffered the most. A person close enough to see the blast, but far enough to survive the initial explosion would have been blinded by the bright flash and received a dose of radiation equivelant to thousands and thousands of chest x-rays. The radiation poisining killed them from the inside out. The atomic bomb caused many cancers The survivors that were on the far fringes of ground zero and did not get an initial heavy dose of radiation did not escape unscathed. In the next 20 to 30 years they would develop multiple cancers and other diseases unknown to man at the time. The effects of radiation penetration could be detected for up to two miles from the blast zone. The atomic bomb caused economic disaster Hiroshima would cost $4,000,000,000 to repair and restore to its original state before the bombing. Today, that cost would be over $80,000,000,000 to repair the destruction.That one atomic bomb exploded over Hiroshima was the beginning of the end for japan. After the second bombing over Nagasaki, Japan surrendered on September 2, 1945.
