August 6 marks the day the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb named “Little Boy” on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Three days later, Nagasaki was also the target of an atomic bomb named “Fat Man”.

  1. but that analysis misses the point – the open air, undersea and underground tests (thousands of them) since the 1940’s EACH have spread as much radiation as if there had been a nuclear war attack.

    No difference in fallout.
