Remastered footage of the first ever atomic bomb: US military's Manhattan Project ushered in the nuclear age with the 'Trinity' test explosion in 1945

Footage released by YouTube site AtomCentral shows it in unprecedented clarity after the removal of dirt and scratches minimised defects in the processing of the original negative.

The explosion was equivalent to 18.6 kilotons of TNT (78 TJ) and was the predecessor to the Fat Man bomb dropped over Nagasaki, Japan, on August 9, 1945 - killing more than 40,000 people.
