The worlds first atomic explosion. Detonated 5:29:45 a.m local time at the Alamogordo Test Range New Mexico, test name Trinity . Intended to prove the new implosion design developed at Los Alamos during the previous year, an early morning thunderstorm delayed the test from its originally scheduled time of 4 a.m. The "gadget" was an untested implosion device using a plutonium later weaponized becoming the "Fatman" bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
