Welp, it's been real, etc. From Reuters:

Donald Trump will travel to Asia next month for the first time since becoming president, stopping in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines on a trip expected to be dominated by the North Korea nuclear threat.

American presidents have traditionally visited the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea during trips to the peninsula, so this raises the possibility of someone who has called Kim Jong-un "Little Rocket Man" standing so close to Kim's heavily nuclearized and besieged country that he'll be able to see it with the naked eye.

Lately I've been reading about the first nuclear explosion in human history, which took place before dawn at the "Trinity site" in the New Mexico desert on July 16, 1945. Here's what one observer wrote about the moment that the bomb went off:

The enormity of the light and its length quite stunned me. The whole sky suddenly full of white light like the end of the world.

Said another, "It is safe to say that nothing as terrible has been made by man before."
