Passage

Finally, the bomb was prepared. The site chosen for the test explosion was the desert region, two hundred miles from Los Alamos.

The entire area was suddenly brighter than the brightest daylight and the bomb was like a ball of fire. Then, came the tremendous roar and the heavy pressure wave, which knocked down two men outside the control Centre and then came the cloud-the mushroom cloud, all the colours of the rainbow, ironically beautiful, surging up to our 40000 feet over 10000 feet higher than the Everest.
