The book named BOMB was a book all about the creation of the weapon. The bomb was discovered during world war ll, by german scientists. They discovered that a great amount of power came from pulling urainum atoms apart. Also the book shows how the bomb became a weapon of the US too, German scientists were forced to leave their home due to the fact that they were Jews. At that time their leader Adolf hitler despised People that were Jewish. And finllaly BOMB This book was intresting it showed how the bomb was created and then talked a lot about the mahnhatten project, but not enough about other stuff.
This article answered questions about the bombing of Hiroshima, as well as the bomb that was used to destroy the place. The bomb that was used on the bombing day was called "little boy" it was filled with 110 pounds of unfused metal but when it touched the ground only 21 pounds of it needed to take out the city of Hiroshima. The reason I included this article because it was fun and filled with cool Q&A about the atomic bomb and others. This article should be read second because it shows one time when it was used and what the bomb could do, how it worked as well.
During world war ll Russia and the US were allies. But during the cold war, they were opposite. This article shows how the cold war of 1947, was feared to become a nuclear war. I put this article in because it showed how the A-bomb was used during the cold war and I think that that is important to the bomb's history. I think this article should be read first because it explains a lot about the bomb. How it was created, when was it used, when was it made and lots more.
