美军的B-29超级堡垒 “Enola Gay（艾诺拉·盖伊）"号于8月6日清晨从提尼安岛起飞，携带了一颗重达4000公斤，昵称为“小男孩”的铀弹。8:15分在广岛上空9,400米处将 “小男孩”投向目标。经过将近57秒的自由落体运动，在广岛目标上空600米处触发了引信。此时，少量高爆炸药爆炸使64公斤铀达到了超临界质量。在64 公斤铀中只有0.7公斤的铀达到裂变状态，其中仅有600毫克铀转化为能量。但是，就是这点爆炸的能量就摧毁了数公里内的一切，以其冲击波将城市夷为平地。随后引起一场狂怒的大火，以及笼罩一切生物的死光 - 核辐射。大约有七万人立即死于这场核爆炸，留下七万人幸存者因伤或核辐射病在50年代慢慢地死去。现在广岛在接近爆心的地方建成了一个“广岛和平纪念博物馆”，用以促进实现消除所有现存核武器的愿景。(简介转自eltonzeng)
