there was a list of 4 target cities in Japan selected for atomic bombing. these were (in alphabetical order):

  1. Hiroshima
  2. kokura
  3. nagasaki
  4. niigata

had japan not surrendered after the 3 planned atomic bombs of august more cities would have been added to this list as needed. considering the fact that the US had plans and production capacity to drop 23 atomic bombs on japan before the end of 1945, it is possible that once the invasion began in october future target selection might have been handed over entirely to the field commanders on tinnian according to the needs of combat.

Did you drop the atomic bomb after the space race or after?

The only atomic bombs dropped on any nation during a military conflict were the two atomic bombs dropped on August 9 and 6 in 1945. There have been test bombs dropped by Russia and the United States but not on people or cities. Therefore the answer to your question is that there have been no bombs dropped after the space race or since World War 2. The reason is obvious: It causes immense devastation and deaths instantly and for many decades afterward. No nation truly wants to use an atomic bomb. The Atomic Race is basically over and thousands of atomic bombs have been dismantled in the USA and world wide. There are still nuclear missiles around but they are meant for defense against nations who use them as offense against another nation (North Korea is a current treat of this.)
