Why would he need to "shop" a photo when the cloud was there to be seen by anyone left alive?

Good question, several ATS members noticed the palimpsest, the allegory is not clear.

A multiple exposure palimpsest watermarking a photographic might be used for recording purposes.

What is the allegory of the 644 paper cranes folded by Sadako Sasaki?

According to the book, she believed that if she folded 1,000 paper cranes she would be healed (I think in the form of a wish, its been a while since I read it though). She died before she reached her goal.

If only those in power actually looked at pictures like that....really looked and imagined the people seeing their loved ones die as they themselves died, seeing families, communities, schools, hospitals...innocents die.

And they could think to themselves...we did that.

As opposed to seeing a strategic victory or another war won.

I'm not just talking about Hiroshima, in general people are a commodity of war and power.

I don't know, we allow these things to happen in our name.

Maybe we should say...we did that.


You may find they may be proud, and tell their children of the methods to become even more powerful and richer.

They have abandoned humanity, that is the point, they lived in prosperity, on the sculls of one hundred thousand or so.

Death means profit for the shrewd.

Radiation exposure decreases with distance . A few feet makes a lot of difference in our atmosphere . As for the radioactive fall out the wind makes a lot of difference . In Japan the Jet Stream was a problem for high altitude bombing as it's velocity was around 165 mph at about 20 ,000 feet . The top of the mushroom cloud would have been displaced as the original photo depicted over the relatively short time of the detonation until the photo was taken . The average 30 minute period of time until the black rain fell could have displaced the disbursal to an area not affected by the blast . From the reports I read people were walking through the city within hours .Of course there were hot spots near ground Zero that took weeks before you could enter and remain for only a short time . There were many pictures of the bomb damage at ground level taken only weeks later . The picture taken at a distance of 7 miles and after the fission process of the bomb producing Gama radiation was over was possible .

One of the worst days in human history, indeed. Think of all the crazies who have bombs many times more powerful than these. Sometimes, I think us humans are programmed for chaos.

Very wrong actually, it was the one of the major causes for ending WW2 against the Japanese. How could that be one of the worst days in human history?

The Enola Gay was accompanied by B-29 bombers.
I did not say my uncle flew the Enola Gay and upon further research I now realize in order to prove myself I would also have to divulge indirectly who I am.
So frankly I don't care if you believe me or not. Sometimes you ats people can be so harsh.
I'm sorry I said anything now. Please disregard my previous post.

Just wondering how the book is affecting you. If you could finish it or not.
Remember, it happened a long time ago.

But I know how you must feel. So I brought along a song for you.

I finished it. It was an extremely difficult read, but I think a necessary one. Now I'm reading another book, called Hiroshima and Nagasaki. So far, they support each other.

Thank you for e recommendations

You may already be aware of this one... if not, put it on your list. You won't regret it.
