somehow i didn't learn about this until it was too late, but the world's oldest operating McDonald's celebrated its 65th birthday yesterday. As a kid, my mother would take us there after her doctors appointments. The museum behind the store is so cool if you're a fan of McDonalds, SoCal burger culture, or just history in general! i decided to sketch out Speedee, #McDonalds ' original mascot, to mark the occasion. also feel like watching "The Founder" again and having me a Sweet Tea.
Trinity: Plutonium Implosion Fission Nuclear Bomb:
At 05:29:21 MWT (± 2 seconds),the device exploded with an energy equivalent to around 20 kilotons of TNT (84 TJ). The desert sand, largely made of silica, melted and became a mildly radioactive light green glass, which was named trinitite. The explosion left a crater in the desert 5 feet (1.5 m) deep and 30 feet (9.1 m) wide. At the time of detonation, the surrounding mountains were illuminated "brighter than daytime.” The angle of light had arrived for one to two seconds, and the heat was that of the fires of hella. The observed colors of the sonic illumination changed from purple to green and eventually to a blinding white. The roar of the shock wave, like the voice of god took 40 seconds to reach the observers. It was felt over 100 miles (160 km) away, and the mushroom cloud reached 7.5 miles (12.1 km) in height. 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
