For thousands of women, men and children in the city of Nagasaki, Japan, 11:02 AM was the moment the world really did end. At this exact moment on August 9th, 1945 an atomic bomb detonated 500 meters in the air, vaporizing over 40,000 people upon detonation and swiftly turning the valley and city of Nagasaki into a firestorm. Those who weren't lucky enough to die from the initial blast were burnt to death or worse, slowly eaten away by radiation poisoning. When the world ends, these monuments and statues will be among the only things that remain to remind anyone that we ever had a place on the Earth.
