People Died More than 100 million soldiers and civilians are estimated to have died

People Died More than 100 million soldiers and civilians are estimated to have died during the international and civil wars of the twentieth century. although this is almost an unimaginable number, there is cause for some hope, even as there is also cause for despair. The hope arises from historical evidence that the number of international wars, civil wars, and other types of armed conflict has in fact declined over the centuries, with the number in the past half-century much smaller than in centuries past Reflecting this decline, a smaller percentage of the world’s population died in armed conflict during the past century than in earlier eras https: //www. google. com/search? site=&tbm=isch&s ource=hp&biw=1280&bih=924&q=atom+bomb+de vestaion&oq=atom+bomb+devestaion&gs_l=img. 3. . . 2791. 17163. 0. 37533. 20. 12. 0. 8. 8. 0. 120. 1336. 0 j 12. 0. . . 1 ac. . 64. img. . 6. 14. 1338. mm.

Explosions In 1946, the Manhattan Engineer District published a study that concluded that 66, 000 people were killed at Hiroshima out of a population of 255, 000. Of that number, 45, 000 died on the first day and 19, 000 during the next four months. In addition, "several hundred" survivors were expected to die from radiation-induced cancers and leukemia over the next 30 years. http: //www. warbirdforum. c om/hirodead. htm Return to Exhibit

Devestation The Hiroshima and Nagasaki explosions yielded some 200 different kinds of radioactive isotopes, that is, nuclear fission particles of uranium and plutonium that escaped fission. Following the explosions, these and other materials irradiated by neutrons from the bomb, were carried high into the atmosphere. http: //atomicbombmuseum. org/3_r adioactivity. shtml Return to Exhibit

Effects of the bomb • The United States becomes the first and only nation to use atomic weaponry during wartime when it drops an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Though the dropping of the atomic bomb on Japan marked the end of World War II, many historians argue that it also ignited the Cold War http: //www. history. com/this-day-inhistory/atomic-bomb-dropped-on-hiroshima Return to Exhibit

Expolsions The most complicated issue to be addressed in making of an atomic bomb was the production of ample amounts of "enriched" uranium to sustain a chain reaction.

Japans nuclear power Today, Japan's nuclear energy infrastructure makes it eminently capable of constructing nuclear weapons at will. The de-militarization of Japan and the protection of the United States' nuclear umbrella have led to a strong policy of nonweaponization of nuclear technology, but in the face of nuclear weapons testing by North Korea, some politicians and former military officials in Japan are calling for a reversal of this policy. http: //33 -minutes. com/33 -minutes/nuclear-warin-america. htm Return to Exhibit

Free of Possibility? There is no more Cold War, so is there a threat

Free of Possibility? There is no more Cold War, so is there a threat of nuclear war in America or is the country free from this possibility? It is true that the Cold War ended in the late 1980's under the Reagan Administration. However, the missile age didn't fully end at that time. Russia and the U. S. both have stockpiles of nuclear weapons which have been slowly reduced over the past 20 years. http: //33 -minutes. com/33 -minutes/nuclear-warin-america. htm Return to Exhibit

Is there threat of nuclear war? The threat of nuclear war in America is still a reality. It is not brought to light very often, but the possibility does still remain. North Korea has ballistic nuclear warhead equipped missiles that can reach the West Coast of America. For years, Russia has had ballistic missiles that can reach all areas within the U. S. Iran is aggressively working on a nuclear program which seems to involve the creation of nuclear weapons. http: //33 -minutes. com/33 -minutes/nuclear-warin-america. htm Return to Exhibit
