Bombardamentele atomice de la Hiroshima i Nagasaki

Bombardamentele atomice de la Hiroshima i

Bombardamentele atomice de la Hiroshima i Nagasaki
au constat din dou atacuri nucleare implicnd aruncarea a
dou bombe atomice, produse de Statele Unite ale Americii,
la sfritul celui de-al doilea rzboi mondial, asupra a dou
orae din Japonia, Hiroshima i Nagasaki. La timpul
aruncrii celor dou bombe atomice, dei rzboiul din
Europa se terminase prin capitularea necondiionat a
Germaniei, Imperiul Japoniei i Statele Unite ale Americii se
aflau nc n stare de rzboi. La 6 august 1945 bomba
atomic cunoscut ca "Little Boy" a fost aruncat deasupra
oraului Hiroshima, iar trei zile mai trziu, la 9 august 1945,
cea de-a doua bomb atomic, cunoscut ca "Fat Man", a
fost detonat deasupra oraului Nagasaki.

Motive pentru efectuarea

Cele dou arme atomice au fost arme de oc i teroare.
Avantajul enorm al acestor arme nu a fost militar (SUA
dispuneau doar de cteva) ci politic. Din punct de vedere
militar, Statele Unite ar fi ctigat puin prin distrugerea a
dou orae japoneze. Dar din punct de vedere civil, Japonia
avea s piard mult. Noutatea adus de armele nucleare a fost
nu distrugerea la scar larg (care s-ar fi putut realiza i cu
arme convenionale n cantitatea necesar), ci faptul c
armele nucleare comprim distrugerea catastrofic ntr-o
perioad de timp foarte scurt schimb dramatic politica
rzboiului, motivaiile oamenilor cu putere de decizie i
capacitatea de a reflecta n timp ce rzboiul se desfoar.

Norul ciuperc provocat de explozia aruncrii celei de-a doua

bombe atomice, [The] Fat Man, deasupra oraului Nagasaki
s-a ridicat la 18 km (sau 11 mi = 60,000 ft) n atmosfer
