On 16 July 1945, the "Trinity’" nuclear test plunged humanity into the so-called Atomic Age when the first-ever nuclear bomb was detonated in New Mexico. This picture shot after the detonation shows a steel containment vessel present during that test. A Vatican representative told an Aug. 26 online U.N. meeting that there is no moral case for continued nuclear weapon testing. (CNS/Reuters/U.S. Gov./Cover Images)
