Fat Man is the name of the second atomic bomb ever made from plutonium and the second atomic bomb to be used in nuclear warfare. It is called Fat Man because of the round shape. It was dropped over the Japanese island of Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. More than a hundred of this kind were made after World War II.
