The Consequences of the Atomic Bomb Long Term and Short Term One of the most powerful yet dangerous assets man has is the ability to harness the power of the atom Like a caged tiger nuclear power can be a blessing or a curse Unfortunately mans first encounter with nuclear energy was indeed a curse for it caused immeasurable pain and suffering The dropping of the atomic bomb was a literally earth-shattering event that caused a ripple effect that we can still feel today When the Americans were developing the Manhattan Project they were surely thinking only of the short-term effects on mankind Their goals were to stop the war and to force Japan to surrender These goals were met on September 2nd 1945 Japan surrendered to the Americans after two atomic bombs had devastated the cities of Hiroshima August 6 1945 and Nagasaki August 9 1945 As another result of these bombings between the two Russia took this opportunity to invade Manchuria The two fronts of battle proved to be too much for the Japanese so they surrendered The final and most long-lasting immediate consequence of the atomic bombings is that nuclear power proved itself as a means of destruction If the creators of the atomic bomb could have somehow been aware of the long-lasting effect it would have would they still have made and dropped it It would have been a very tough decision because the consequences were both positive and negative On the positive side the atomic bomb was the advent of the harnessing of nuclear power and gave way to what can be referred to as the nuclear age We now have such apparatuses as the nuclear submarine and the nuclear power plant Unfortunately while the atomic bomb allowed a war to end it also eventually started another one The cold war although non-violent for the most part was a bitter feud between the USA and the USSR
