Today, atomic bombs are used for an assortment of civil purposes. Some are for exhibition as well as being used in what is called 'peaceful' nuclear detonations that are done for non-military means.

The most common use for them now though is for economic progress - meaning that they are used on a mass scale for constructing canals and dams.

In the 1960s and 70s, it was the Soviet Union as well as the United States that executed a numerous amount of explosions, using the atomic bomb. But in 1976 a bill was passed by the Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaty putting an end to this.

Today, they are used to deter any other countries from attacking with these types of deadly weapons, due in large, to the fact that if a country uses the atomic bomb to attack another country, then that country will in turn, attack with the very same weapon. This has been effective so far and hopefully will continue to be so.

First used as a ‘weapon for mass destruction’ in World War 2 and clearly remembered by many for the widespread death it causes when the United States dropped one on Nagasaki and Hiroshima in Japan.

The way this bomb works is by fission, a truly physical phenomenon. In the case of Japan, nuclei particles are split up creating huge amounts of energy being released.
In the atomic bomb, this very energy is blasted out violently and explosively. The immense power that makes this reaction in the atomic bomb comes from forces that are holding it together.

Uranium-235 is the element that is used in the atomic bomb. The atoms in uranium are extraordinarily large, making it hard for them to firmly hold together making Uranium-235 the very best contender for this nuclear fission.
As a heavy metal, uranium has a whole lot more neutrons compared to its protons. This has a considerable hold on its capability to boost the explosion!

The atomic bomb and weapons of mass destruction are used today as a deterrent. The idea is that if a country's government believes that you are likely to retaliate with atomic weaponry, they will not attack you with atomic weapons first. A strange line of thought, which has worked so far, but may be brought to an abrupt end when one considers that there are now people in the world for whom death has no meaning, and the destruction of a people even less.

Atomic bombs were first used as weapons of mass destruction during the World War II when the US bombed the dropped on Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Since then nuclear weapons have been exploded over two thousand instances for experimenting and exhibition purposes.
Apart from their use as arms, atomic bombs have been experimented and utilised for sundry civil purposes. These are primarily carried out through a process known as peaceful nuclear explosions. These are detonations carried out for non-military purposes. The purposes mostly relate to areas of economic progression. These explosions were used in large scale to construct dams and canals.
The United States as well as the erstwhile Soviet Union carried out a number of such explosions in the 1960s and 1970s. These were however put to an end by the Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaty of 1976.
