Today marks the 73rd Anniversary since the U.S. dropped the atomic bomb 'Little Boy' on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on the 6th of August, 1945.
The detonation method for 'Little Boy' didn't yield in large amounts of radioactive fallout, however, its destructive capacity resulted in an explosive force of 16kilotonnes, equivalent to 16,000tonnes of TNT, or 200 bombing runs.
The blast radius was approximately 3kilometres wide, had an impact which caused fires 6.5kilometres away from the epicentre, and following the initial blinding detonation flash, released lethal gamma rays that would induce cancers in the exposed citizens of Hiroshima.
