Atomic Bombing of Nagasaki (69th Anniversary)

MOSCOW, August 9 (RIA Novosti) - Saturday, August 9 marks the sixty-ninth anniversary of the tragic atomic bomb attack on Japan’s Nagasaki by the United States in World War II.
In the final stages of World War II in 1945 an atomic bomb attack was carried out on the Japanese city of Nagasaki, marking the first use of nuclear weapons in warfare, along with the Hiroshima bombing.
The city of Nagasaki is located in the western section of Japan’s Kyushu Island and is the capital of Nagasaki Prefecture. Nagasaki started as a small fishing village and eventually turned into a major seaport linking Japan with the outside world. During Japan’s isolationist period, Nagasaki was the only port allowed to trade with Holland and China.

August 6, 1945: the day the world changed forever | euronews,

 Something changed forever on August 6, 1945 when, for the first time, the world witnessed the explosion of an atomic bomb.
As that fateful day dawned, a B-29 American bomber named the Enola Gay took off from an island in the Pacific Ocean heading for Japan, which had prompted the US’ entry into World War II by attacking Pearl Harbour some three and a half years earlier. At 8:15 AM local time its crew dropped an atomic bomb, nicknamed “Little Boy” on the Japanese city of Hiroshima.
Those aboard the Enola Gay watched as the city, inhabited by 350,000 people, disappeared into dust. Robert Lewis, the co-pilot of the American bomber commented in the flight log: “My God, what have we done?”
The bomb caused the immediate death of 70,000 people. This figure increased to an estimated 200,000 as more victims succumbed to nuclear radiation.
The explosion destroyed every building in a radius of 2,5 km; it broke windows 16 km away, while the force of the blast could be felt as far away as 60 kilometres.
The mushroom cloud created by the nuclear explosion hung in the sky over Hiroshima for hours.........Συνέχεια του άρθρου/Read more .....August 6, 1945: the day the world changed forever | euronews,
