The second atomic bomb used in military action, which was nicknamed 'Fat Man' and dropped by a US airforce B52 bomber, exploded with a force of 22 kilotons of TNT. The explosion killed 39,000 and devastated the city. The death toll continued to rise over the years as survivors developed cancers associated with radiation; ultimately claiming over 75,000 lives.
