Sixty Years Ago Today

[This is from my friend Marsha Joyner, who produced the TV series. I carried something else by her yesterday. --BG]

“All life on Earth has been touched by the event, which took place here."

The official Trinity Site proclaims
For we are all Downwind

Atomic Bomb Series on ‘Olelo Channel 53 (Hawaii)

Sixty years ago on July 16, 1945, the final step of the WWII Manhattan Project took place at Trinity Site, Alamogordo, New Mexico where the first atomic bomb was tested at 5:29:45 a.m. Mountain War Time. The project marked the beginning of an era of nuclear weapons, scientific discoveries, unfathomable injuries and unimaginable sorrows.

The 19-kiloton explosion ushered the world into the atomic age. The second bomb, known as "Little Boy", was detonated over the city of Hiroshima, August 6, 1945. The third bomb, known as "Fat Man", was detonated over the city of Nagasaki, August 9, 1945. The fourth bomb known as “Able” was detonated in Bikini and began 30 years of horrific atomic/Hydrogen bomb tests throughout the Pacific Ocean.

The atomic/nuclear age has wrought worldwide havoc beyond belief. It has had such an impact on our lives, that we should not ignore the history but study it and learn from it.

From 1945 through 1962, the United States conducted atmospheric tests of nuclear weapons. Hundreds of thousands of military personnel and civilians participated in the conduct of those tests, and many of the participants were exposed to ionizing radiation.
