Early in the morning on July 16th, 1945, the first atomic bomb was detonated at the Trinity test site in the New Mexico desert. The nuclear explosion produced a blast equilavent of 18,000 tons of TNT with a temperature over 10 million degrees fahrenheit, far hotter than the surface of the sun. The intense heat melted the New Mexico desert sand into a light green, glass-like substance which was later named Trinite. This sample of rare Trinite, along with a photograph of original test explosion, signifies the dramatic end to World War IIs Pacific conflict and the beginning of the age of atomic energy.
