Woodguy2012: And that bomb was a 22 cal compared to today’s warheads.
mdb_la: If anyone has the opportunity to visit Hiroshima and the Peace Memorial Park, I cannot recommend it enough. (It’s essentially the triangular shaped area near the center of the pictures.) It’s a beautiful area, and it’s incredible that a city that was completely ravaged by war can build something that isn’t about anger or blame and is dedicated only to telling the stories of what happened and working to ensure that it never happens again.
Plus, there’s a delicious okonomiyaki place just a few steps away.
wakethemorning: Potentially silly question, but, looking at the after-map: does that mean the bridges mostly survived intact?
dall007: Is that a castle in the top right?
BudMasterMcSwagatron: Here’s an overhead shot of the city today.
zawri: I wish everyone who fantasizes about using nukes (especially those who actually like, you know, have the power to) could see this and actually understand how insane it is to think nukes should exist.
Yeah, the power is a sight to behold and stuff but what problem is so huge you need this to solve it?
ContentSafe: are both shots from august 6th?
i thought the second picture is from after the cleanup happened, but i might not remember it correctly.
sneekeemonkee: Filter -> Blur – > Gaussian Blur – > 142.5 px
cabronoso: Where is the big ass crator?
Pitta_: where does all the stuff go?? is it just blasted into dust? it doesn’t look like there are any rubble piles or anything
Aeium: I’ve seen this picture before but I never noticed the bridge that goes to the other bridge before.
Oreotech: This is not the point below where the bomb was detonated. Also it doesn’t look like a very big area. You can kinda see containers for scale.
VoltaireChimera: Left: Hangover when you’re 21.
Right: Hangover when you’re 31.
MachoManCandyRabbage: So America is the new Nazi Germany once the empire is toppled, right?
