We are happy to see you here, and we try to provide you best facts about ATOMIC BOMB.
A nuclear weapon/atom bomb is an explosive device its destructive force from nuclear reactions,either fission (fission bomb) or from a combination of
fission and fusion reactions (thermonuclear bomb). So We concluded some most amazing facts about ATOMIC BOMB.
Here are the 20 interesting facts about ATOMIC BOMB.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not radioactive anymore mostly because the bombs didn't touch the ground but were detonated in the air.
Fat Man was the codename for the atomic bomb that was detonated over Nagasaki, and Little Boy for Hiroshima bomb.
CT body scans would expose you to the same amount of radiation as that experienced within a mile and a half of the Hiroshima atomic bomb.

May 1998, at 15.45 hours, India conducted three underground nuclear tests at the Indian Army’s Pokhran Range. A sequence of five nuclear bomb
test explosions was conducted with a fission device, a low-yield device and a thermo-nuclear device.
The temperatures near the site of the bomb blast during the Hiroshima explosion were estimated to be 300,000°Celsius (540,000°Fahrenheit).
That's 300 times hotter than the temperature bodies are cremated at.
