Atomic bombing of Hiroshima

In this handout picture released by the U.S. Army, the plume of smoke from a mushroom cloud billow, about one hour after the nuclear bomb was detonated above Hiroshima, Japan on Aug. 6, 1945. Two planes participated in this mission; the Enola Gay carried and dropped the weapon, and another was an escort. Estimates vary, but about 140,000 people are believed to have died in the nuclear blast. (AP Photo/U.S. Army via Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, HO)
