A living proof that steel structures don’t pulverize into fine dust, or self-mutilate, even when an atom bomb is detonated above them!
Hiroshima Peace Memorial, commonly known as the Atomic Bomb Dome or A-Bomb Dome, part of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
The atomic bomb codenamed “Little Boy” was detonated almost directly above the building (the hypocenter was 150 meters away) on 6 August 1945. The building has been preserved in the same state as immediately after the bombing, and now serves as the reminder of nuclear devastation and as a symbol of hope for world peace and elimination of all nuclear weapons.
The A-Bomb Dome is a living proof that steel structures don’t pulverize into fine dust, or self-mutilate, even when an atom bomb is detonated above them!
