Update (Oct 9th, 2005) I've uploaded a new version of the movie here. It included some graphical updates and a credit sequence, enjoy.
On July 16th, 1945, the first man-made nuclear explosion took place at the Alamogordo Test Range. Under a month later, the first atomic bomb, dubbed "Little Boy," arrived at Tinian airbase. The bomb was loaded in a modified B-29, the Enola Gay, and on August 6th, 1945 at 2:45 AM, the Enola Gay lifted off from Tinian. By 6:00 AM, the bomb had been armed in flight and Colonel Paul Tibbets announced to the crew that they were carrying the world's first atomic bomb. Just over two hours later, at 8:12 AM, the bomb was released from the Enola Gay.
Little Boy exploded two thousand feet above the city. The blast was equal to that of 13,000 tons of TNT, and over 80,000 died within seconds of the explosion. Three days later, a second bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki. On August 14th, Japan accepted the Allied terms of surrender, effectively ending World War II. Together, the two bombings killed approximately 110,000 Japanese citizens and injured another 130,000. By 1950, 230,000 Japanese had died from injuries or radiation.
