I subscribe to Discover Magazine and am constantly blown away with the stuff I read.
Last night I was reading a recent edition and just had to share two facts about the Hiroshima bomb that they mentioned:
- The amount of matter converted to energy in the atomic bomb was about 700 milligrams – less than 1/3 the mass of a US dime.
- The fireball resulting from the bomb’s explosion was 50% hotter than the surface of the sun.
I do not know about you – but all I can say is holy cow…that is a lot coming from a little!!
