A newspaper photographer, Jean, researches the lurid and sensational axe murder of two women in 1873 as an editorial tie-in with a brutal modern double murder.
She discovers a cache of papers that appear to give an account of the murders by an eyewitness.
Thermal burns of bare skin occurred as far as 3.5 kilometers from ground zero (directly below the burst point).
Most people exposed to thermal rays within 1-kilometer radius of ground zero died.
Tile and glass melted; all combustible materials were consumed.
An atomic explosion causes an enormous shock wave followed instanteneously by a rapid expansion of air called the blast; these represent roughtly half the explosion's released energy.
local time (August 6, 1945), the Enola Gay, a B-29 bomber loaded with an atomic bomb, took off from the US air base on Tinian Island in the western Pacific. Maximum temperature at burst point: several million degrees centigrade.
He is a tall man as he has a very dazzling height of 5 feet 11 inches, which is around 1.80 meters.
The top of the atomic cloud reached an altitude of 17,000 meters.
Intense thermal heat emitted by the fireball caused severe burns and loss of eyesight.
Life expectancies of cigarette smokers and non-smokers in the United States.
The United States concealed its project to develop an atomic bomb under the name “Manhattan Engineer District.” Popularly known as the Manhattan Project, it carried out the first successful atomic explosion on July 16, 1945, in a deserted area called Jornada del Muerto (“Journey of the dead”) near Alamagordo, New Mexico. A fireball of 15-meters radius formed in 0.1 millisecond, with a temperature of 300,000 degrees centigrade, and expanded to its huge maximum size in one second.
