After months of research and testing, the top-secret "Manhattan Project" produced the world's first nuclear bomb. The device was successfully detonated on July 16th, 1945 at Alamogordo, New Mexico under the code name "Trinity". The resulting explosion was equivalent to the energy of 18,000 tons of TNT. The immense heat of the atomic blast melted the desert sand as it was drawn up into the fireball. The liquid sand rained down, forming sheets of glass as it cooled. This atomic glass has come to be known as Trinitite.
Bought it for my cousin, he loved it! Very good shipping and amazing quality, will definitely be buying more this site. Would recommend to fellow science lovers.
I gave it as a gift to my grandma, she put it in the kitchen with the stove on, she exploded and died. RIP
On of the safest way to own a part of such a historic achievement in US history .
This museum is a unique item that has already generated questions from my grade school age granddaughter about early nuclear history. It’s a high quality product with an interesting description and we look forward to future nuclear history related museums (such as one for heavy water?). Overall, very educational and attention grabbing.
