We learnt that the bomb exploded 600m above the city but the ground heated up to between 3-4,000 degrees so the whole area as far as 3km away was totally destroyed by fire. There were 350,000 people in Hiroshima at the time and by Christmas, 140,000 had died. So far, over 300,000 people have died because of the blast or the after effects of the radiation.
