Associated With
Manhattan Project

In 1939, when Hitler-led Germany invaded Poland, physicists including Albert Einstein warned the US government of the danger threatening all of humanity if the Nazis should be the first to make a nuclear bomb. Oppenheimer then began to seek a process to develop an atomic bomb

Oppenheimer Develops Nuclear Weapons 

Oppenheimer was instructed to establish and administer a laboratory to carry out the task of creating nuclear weapons as part of the Manhattan Project. In 1943, he chose the plateau of Los Alamos, near Santa Fe, New Mexico to carry out his assignment

The efforts of Oppenheimer and his peers at Los Alamos culminated in the first nuclear explosion on July 16, 1945, at the Trinity Site near Alamogordo, New Mexico, after the surrender of Germany

First Nuclear Explosion 

Oppenheimer was accused of having associations with communists in the past, of delaying the naming of Soviet agents, and of opposing the building of the hydrogen bomb. A security hearing declared him not guilty of treason but ruled that he should not have access to military secrets

Controversy Surrounding
Oppenheimer 

Due to the security hearing’s decision of Oppenheimer not having access to military secrets, his contract as adviser to the Atomic Energy Commission was cancelled. Oppenheimer became a worldwide symbol of the scientist who, while trying to resolve moral problems that arise from scientific discovery, becomes the victim of a witch hunt

Oppenheimer: A Victim
Of A Witch Hunt

Oppenheimers’s assertions of loyalty were bolstered after USA’s Department of Energy released the full declassified transcript of the hearing in 2014
