Atomic Bomb - Recreation of the First Test

By mid-July, of 1945, a new weapon (being developed, in secret, by the "Manhattan Project") was ready for testing. 

This clip, from a BBC documentary on Hiroshima, recreates what happened when the very first atomic bomb was detonated in New Mexico. 

Not only were scientists stunned by what they witnessed, they began to worry about what they had created.
