Incredible remastered footage has been released showing the moment the world's first ever nuclear bomb was detonated.

The 'Trinity' test on 5:29am MT (11:29am GMT) July 16, 1945 was the culmination of years of work by the famed Manhattan Project and ushered into existence the nuclear era when the plutonium bomb, dubbed 'Gadget', exploded in the Jornada del Muerto desert.

Footage released by YouTube site AtomCentral shows it in unprecedented clarity after the removal of dirt and scratches minimised defects in the processing of the original negative.

The explosion was equivalent to 18.6 kilotons of TNT (78 TJ) and was the predecessor to the Fat Man bomb dropped over Nagasaki, Japan, on August 9, 1945 - killing more than 40,000 people.
