That 15 kiloton blast
Codenamed “Little Boy”, this was the first atomic bomb to be used as a weapon, and it was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6th. Estimates for the explosion range between 13-18 kilotons of TNT.
60,000-70,000 people were killed immediately (30% of the city’s population at the time), and by the end of 1945, the death toll was estimated at 90,000-166,000. Many who survived the blast later died of cancer and other effects associated with radiation poisoning.
