To our viewers
An atomic bomb exploded over the Urakami district of Nagasaki at 11:02 a.m., August 9, 1945. A half a century has passed since that second nuclear calamity in human history, but the end of the nuclear age remains stubbornly out of sight. On the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the atomic bombing, the Scientific Data Center for the Atomic Bomb Disaster reorganized the information on the medical effects of the atomic bombing -particularly the late effects of exposure to radiation- assiduously compiled by researchers since the restoration of the former Nagasaki Medical College. The information displayed here was chosen to give viewers a brief but comprehensive introduction into the effects of nuclear weapons.
We hope that you will grasp the impact of the atomic bomb on the human body and that you will join us in striving to ensure that Nagasaki is the last place on earth to suffer the effects of a nuclear explosion.
