Strange Histories From The Atomic Age

So it turns out that there were various alternate sites for those atomic bombings over Japan during the Second World War.

Nagasaki, in particular, got unlucky as it was only a back up or secondary site that got bombed only because the primary site was not visible because of bad weather or some other reason.

Details in this article with link to a book that apparently has all the details about those atomic bombings.

And who knew that the famed Dr. Robert J. Oppenheimer had an equally talented brother who got into trouble because of communist leanings and was denied permission to visit India to work on cosmic rays with Dr. Homi Bhava!
