ATOMIC BOMB BLAST

Harmless Dispersal Of Radio Active Products U.S. OFFICIAL STATEMENT Rec. 11 a.m. NEW YORK, Aug. 12. The United States War Department, in a statement on the atomic bomb, disclosed that it was detonated in* combat at such a height above the ground as to give the maximum blast effect against structures and disseminate radio active products as a cloud. Due to the height of the explosion, practically all radio active products were carried upward in a, column of hot air which dispersed harmlessly over a wide area. Even in the New Mexico test, where the height of the explosion was necessarily low, only a very small fraction of radio activity was deposited immediately under the bomb.
