The 70th Anniversary of the Bombing of Hiroshima

Seventy years ago today, August 6, 1945, the U.S. dropped the world's first atomic weapon
on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, and Japan surrendered on August 15, ending World War II. Those events ushered in the nuclear era.
