The dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima occurred on August 6th, 1945 at 8:15 AM. The bomb was a uranium gun-type bomb nicknamed ‘Little Boy’. The amount of energy that the ‘Little Boy’ generated when it exploded was equivalent to a 15 kiloton TNT explosion. However, when the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, 60,000-80,000 people were killed instantly. Over the next four months, tens of thousands more people died due to various illnesses which were mainly caused by radiation exposure.
Late at night, Ted’s wife, Maureen, answered the phone and was shocked to find that their daughter had been hit by a car. Again, the narrator brings up the meteor, named Chicxulub, to compare how the meteor and death are related. He explains that this meteor came sixty-five million years ago and that “seventy-five percent of all known species were extinguished, including the dinosaurs.” He compares the incident of the meteor to his daughter’s situation because both the meteor and being hit by a car are unexpected events that both ruin lives. Also, the narrator states “calculate the chances
The Oxford dictionary defines extinction in relation to biology as a species, family or a large group having no living members (Oxford, 2016). With the estimation of the four billion species that evolved on earth during its 4 billion year existence, about 99% of them now are extinct (Novacek, 2001). This displays how natural extinction is, but it is usually stabilized by speciation (Barnosky, 2011). A major extinction event is one in which many species meet their end over a short period of time, these events are grand in scale and many species of all ecological types (i.e. animals and plants, aquatic and terrestrial) all around the world are involved (Benton, 2011).
They found evidence of a giant tsunami in the Gull of Mexico, the Caribbean, Spain and Brazil. The dinosaurs were thought to have survived, but the effects left were deadly. Debris took place in the atmosphere and reached space to heat it and cause forest fires. Pieces of ejects settled back down on Earth, leaving dust in the atmosphere that blocked sunlight, causing an impact winter, followed by darkness and cold and low temperatures that stopped photosynthesis and led to the food chains collapsing. Carbon and sulfur contained in the Asteroid were thought to have aggravated these devastating
The leading edge of the wings reached 4,400 degrees Celsius. All of the heat sensors which were around this area was showing the extreme heat temperature. 6 minutes before the disaster the temperature sensors was going off because of the super-heated gasses. These gasses burn and melt everything inside the left wing. Then, the space shuttle was disintegrated in the sky above Texas and the 7 astronauts passed away.
The tube shaped administration module had six pie-cut divisions. Areas 2, 3, 5 and 6 held the fundamental fuel tanks. Area 4 held the harmed oxygen tank. At around 56 hours into the flight of Apollo 13, Jack Swigert was told to "mix the tanks," or upset the super-icy fluid oxygen. Minutes after the fact, oxygen tank 2 detonated.
Sacred Miracle cave is polluted and it resembles resemble like Moby Dick, The Great White Whale. Here the destruction of humankind is portrayed. The underground stream which passed through the bowels of Sacred Miracle Cave was polluted by some sort of industrial waste which formed bubbles as though as ping-pong balls…the bubbles would soon engulf Moby Dick and invade the Cathedral of Whispers, which was the main attraction at the cave. Thousands of people had been married in the Cathedral of Whispers-including Dwayne and Lyle and Kyle. (119) Trout moves to West Virginia indicating the destruction of the planet.
Do you believe that humans can live in Mars with such environmental conditions? Humans can extinct like dinosaurs due to the crash of Phobos. Humans can freeze to death in -60 degree Celsius. Humans can die due to lack of oxygen and water. Can humans live Mars?
On August 6th, 1945, the world was abruptly pushed into the atomic age. An American aircraft named Enola Gay hovered over Japan carrying “Little Boy”, a bomb weighing 9,700 pounds crafted from highly enriched uranium-235. Poised above Aioi Bridge in Hiroshima city, at precisely 8:15 a.m. local time, Little Boy dropped. The explosion destroyed 4 square miles of the city, about 90,000 people were killed instantly and 40,000 were injured. Just three days later, Major General Charles Sweeney dropped a second nuclear bomb on Nagasaki, killing around 37,000 people and injuring another 43,000.
Bradbury presents the house as the main character of the story because all the people have been wiped out by what seems to be a nuclear bomb. It is fully automated, performing many duties that a human would do, such as cooking, cleaning and even talking.
