Trinity was the first test of an atomic weapon. It was conducted by the United Stateson July 16, 1945 at a location 35 miles (56 km) southeast of Socorro, New Mexico on the White Sands Proving Ground. Trinity was a test of an implosion-design plutonium device. The weapon’s codename was “The Gadget”. Using the same conceptual design, the Fat Man device was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, on August 9. The Trinity detonation was equivalent to the explosion of around 20 kilotons of TNT. The date is usually considered the beginning of the Atomic Age.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_(nuclear_test)
