Testing the "Fat Man" bomb

In this historic photo, bomb assembly group leader Norris Bradbury stands next to the "Gadget". This nuclear bomb was detonated on 16 July 1945 at the Trinity test site in New Mexico, as a trial for the "Fat Man" bomb that would be dropped on the Japanese city of Nagasaki on 9 August 1945.

Gadget's explosion at 5.30 am was felt 160 kilometres away and sent a mushroom cloud billowing over 12 kilometres high. Because of the secrecy surrounding the US atomic bomb project a cover story was issued, telling the press that an ammunition store had exploded.
