Atomic Archive

Wednesday, December 29th, 2004 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

This is a site where you can explore the history, science, and consequences of the atomic bomb. It is also very easy to navigate with tabs — Science, History, Library, Media, and Almanac.

Science — Here is where you learn the science behind the atomic bomb. From how the nuclear reaction is made to the after effects caused by the reaction. There is even a nifty section called “Example Scenarios”, where you can read “what if” scenarios on major cities.

History — “A comprehensive section chronicling the discovery of nuclear fission, the race for the atomic bomb, the development of the hydrogen bomb and the ensuing Cold War and beyond.” Their explanation really said it very accurately so I quoted their site. This section is divided into four categories: The Manhattan Project, The First Pile, Trinity Site, and Manhattan Project Signature Facilities. This is a quote I found in this section: “The discovery of how to release nuclear energy was arguably the most important human discovery since fire—reason enough to preserve its remarkable history.” (Pulitzer-prize winner Richard Rhodes)

Library — Here you will find a load of information, from timelines to treaties, historical documents to biographies, and even a teacher’s guide. There’s a lot to explore so take your time in this section.

Media — I loved this section! Here you will find photographs, video, and maps relating to the first atomic bombs. I loved some of the animations and interactive models the most.

Almanac — “Explore our nuclear world with an extensive collection of data and interactive maps about nuclear stockpiles, facilities, and forces.” This is where you can get data about Nuclear Facilities, Nuclear Stockpiles, Nuclear Forces, Nuclear Test Sites, Broken Arrows, Nuclear Accidents, and Nuclear Smuggling Incidents.

You can also check out on the home page “This Month in Atomic History”. For instance, today in 1938 “Hahn and Strassmann (later Meiter and Frisch) conclude that the identification of barium implies that the uranium nucleus has been fissioned by neutrons.”

Put on your dark sunglasses and head on over.
