Science fiction was born in the fires of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
As I read the opening description of the mushroom cloud, I get goosebumps. The dreadful accidental explosion that just happened in Beruit's port was not an atomic weapon and nowhere near the strength of the blasts. But seeing the awful, raw first-person footage of the event is unforgettable. Although, not an act of war like the one used in WWII, it's another vivid reminder of our assumed control over such violent, barely harnessed forces.
