HIROSHIMA, JAPAN - AUGUST 05: Atomic Bomb Dome is seen in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park on August 5, 2009 in Hiroshima, Japan. Hiroshima marks the 64th anniversary of the dropping of the first use of an atomic bomb in war, on August 6. The dropping of the bomb by the U.S. killed an estimated 70,000 people instantly, with many thousands more dying over the following years from the effects of radiation. Three days later another atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, ending World War II. (Photo by Junko Kimura/Getty Images)
