5) Testing the Atomic Bomb
On this day in 1945, the United States conducted a test detonation of the atomic bomb in the desert of New Mexico at the Trinity bomb site. The development of the atomic bomb began in August of 1942 as part of the Manhattan Project. In 1945, the U.S. bombed the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki marking the first and only time an atomic weapon has been used in a war.
