Fat Man and Little Boy

Imagine if you lived in the 1940's and Fat Man and Little Boy were being created during WWII.
Imagine if their radioactivity were much more powerful than they were, yet, with no explosion, no blast injuries or tertiary effect, no noise, only>
the invisible radiation. Imagine the bombs "exploded" accidentally in Los Alamos, and thousands of people in New Mexico started dying of radiation sickness, and soon millions around the world did. Imagine our leaders told us we couldn't ever really be sure what caused it.>
They just urged us to combat the sickness with a tiny dose of radium in an elixir like"Radithor."
Imagine some people did and died quickly, and many didn't die. Yet. Imagine most people didn't understand the science of radiation and half life and radiation poisoning, but you did.
