White Sands zero hour

Detonation of an atomic bomb in White Sands, New Mexico.

The Atomic Age was a time period in Earth history that followed the detonation of the first atomic bomb.

While discussing the age degenerative radiation sickness that had affected all of the landing party of the USS Enterprise, except Pavel Chekov, Doctor Leonard McCoy recalled having once read a piece from ancient history that contained information on a potential cure. This early research, recorded just after the Atomic Age, was based on the effects of administering adrenaline as a treatment for radiation sickness, which he noted as being "highly promising," but was ultimately abandoned when hyronalin was discovered.
