The location in Japan where, at 11:02 am on August 9, 1945, a plutonium implosion bomb, Fat Man, was dropped. The yield was 22 kilotons. The damage to the city was less extensive than at Hiroshima, due partly to the geography of the Nagasaki area and partly to the fact that the bomb was dropped about 2 miles off target. Of the 286,000 people living in Nagasaki at the time of the blast, 74,000 were killed and another 75,000 sustained serious injuries.
