Fat Man on Tinian
The Fat Man bomb being readied on Tinian.

The rapid spontaneous fission rate of plutonium 239 necessitated that a different type of bomb be designed. A gun-type bomb would not be fast enough to work. Before the bomb could be assembled, a few stray neutrons would have been emitted, and these would start a premature chain reaction­leading to a great reduction in the energy released.
