In the Atomic Bomb Museum, there is lots of information in written form to absorb. This display, explaining how the bomb works, shows the scale of the device.

My Spotlighted Images

I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

The bomb is not very large in size. However, it makes a lot of bad things.

It is very moving to think of these bombs which made so much and so many useless deaths. Thank you for having shared this tribute with us

An impressive piece of metal. The people around it helps to appreciate the impact such a size weapon would create from a great height.

Doesn't look like much when you see them in the museum, do they? But oh, the destruction.

The size does not honor of the destructive power. (Neither of the bomd or other latest deadliest artifact).
Nice series
