That’s kind of a hard title to write. Â Ever seen the documentary White Light/Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? It’s not an easy documentary to watch; it gives a face to the receivers of the Fat Man and Little Boy inventions.
A user named RestrictedData on YouTube has uploaded this video — which is pretty much the whole shebang, from rolling Fat Man out of the garage to the bomb detonating on Nagasaki, Japan. Â It’s eleven minutes, but it’s historically awesome, and awesome not in the thumbs up way but awesome in the way that it was meant — it will fill you with awe to see that thing detonate. Â It’s frightening:
Crazy. The unbelievable power of those things; I find it amazing that we can’t out that kind of energy towards free energy for everyone. Â Can you imagine if we had small dishwasher-sized devices in our homes that delivered all of the power needed for heat and electricity? Â Nah, instead we have weapons that can erase all life in a 5-mile radius and ruin the next two or three thousand years for the next 5-10 miles. Â That’s so much better.
