Research? Good, you want to do some of your own homework. Okay, got to your web search window at the top of the screen. Then type "use the atomic bomb". There is a long, kinda boring article by a General Stimson, about what he thought were the positive effects of the bomb. There is another long article, but with pictures, on the second page of references. It is called "The Atomic Bomb and the End of World War II."

Randi Originally Answered: Is Hiroshima and Nagasaki still radioactive?
The radiation itself was momentary however the neutron burst would've activated and debris into their radioactive isotopes with varying half lifes. Some of these isotopes are particularly dangerous as they are variations of elements our body naturally uses so the isotopes are brought into close proximity with our DNA causing damage. This is why iodine tablets were part of the "survival kit", by being saturated with known iodine, you would not absorb the radioactive iodine and it would not come into close enough proximity to harm you. Most of the other elements are easily filtered out and kept at a safe distance with simple barriers and air gaps. Iodine-131 has a half life of 8 days so it's only a problem for a few months at the most. Other isotopes like Thorium-232 have a half life of 14 billion years but fortunately these heavier elements are not the majority of the radioactive fallout, remember, the heavier elements must be in the debris in order to be activated into isotopes by the neutron burst and these elements only exist in trace amounts to begin with. There will always be residual radioactivity but the majority drops off quickly after the event. Yes, both Hiroshima and Nagasaki are still radioactive but no, it's not dangerous to be a tourist there as the bioavailable isotopes had very short half lives. It's often believed that the bombs were air detonated to maximize the area affected but that was not the case. An airburst minimizes the amount of debris drawn into the fireball and hence minimizes the radioactive fallout. Remember, they were anticipating putting soldiers at ground zero within days of atomic blasts. Note, the legs of your kitchen table are probably radioactive too. Ever since X-ray machines and smoke detectors have been scrapped, various radioactive materials have made it's way into the recycled metal to the point where virtually all refined metals are now radioactive. To make an accurate and sensitive geiger counter now requires salvaging metal from a WWII shipwreck.

This Site Might Help You. RE: Is Hiroshima and Nagasaki still radioactive? I heard nuclear waste has a half life of 1000 years or something like that. So does that mean those cities are radioactive.

The main answer for this is that it saved hundreds of American lives - we were planning an invasion/attack on Japanese soil that would have cost many lives because the Japanese were brought up to fight to the end (i.e. they would not surrender). Another reason for this is to justify the creation of the bombs. The atomic bombs were a secret operation that costs billions of federal government money - the government felt they had to use the bombs to justify spending so much money on them. Finally, as you may or may not know, World War 2 led to the Cold War, where we had an arms race with the Soviet Union. The atomic bombs were also used because they demonstrated the power that the United States had - i.e., the Soviet Union would be more careful with United States relationships. Hope this helps

well it helped us win the Pacific Theature But as far as I knowther were no good points Try searching MacDougall Little textbook I had a course on this in 7th grade from this publisher

Lenore Originally Answered: Why was it necessary for us to drop the Atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
The japanese showed in the defense of the islands approaching Japan that there were not just willing but were commited to fighting to the last man (and woman and child, actually, because in at least one case all of the women on one of the islands commited suicide by jumping off a cliff rather than surrender). The deaths to the attacking allies were horrific, and it was estimated that it would take another couple million us casualties before the japanese were defeated. They refused to even consider surrendering even though the war was clearly lost. So, a decision was made, and whether it was the right one or not is still being debated. The only way to get the Japanese to end the war was to show them that they were facing something worse than death. I'd say it worked, as horrible a thing as it was.
