Trinity, instead of exploding

first nuclear bomb in the world

July 16, 1945.

Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA,

May 1945

May, 1945.

The hot desert of New Mexico

seems far from the ravages of

the war in Europe.

100 tons of dynamite.

A test...

to measure and calibrate

the power of a nuclear weapon ever tested.

Two months later...

Man releases the destructive power

a demon imprisoned

into the very fabric of matter,

and plunge the world

in the atomic age.

Over the next 20 years,

power tests

nuclear bombs

will maintain the fascination of the world

for these events surrounded by secrecy.

VENTS launched

seven years earlier.


Hitler invaded Austria!

March 13, 1938.

Hitler invaded Austria.

3rd Reich begins to deploy

its military power.

Later that year,

German scientists

discover fission

of the uranium nucleus

What brings the 3rd Reich

a step

the discovery of the secret

of the atomic bomb.


Fear of German research

stimulates activities to

United States and England.

The fear that German scientists

could produce weapons

high destructive power.

In autumn 1939,

Dr. Albert Einstein

wrote his famous letter

President Roosevelt,

explaining the urgency of working

in the fission of uranium.

Roosevelt, a man of action,

responded quickly,

and creates an advisory committee

of uranium.


German forces invaded Poland

dragging European nations

in the second world war.



A new branch of the Corps of Engineers

was created to oversee the work

on military use of uranium.

Major General L.R. Growe,

the man in charge of the Pentagon,

was appointed head


December 2, 1942, the first reactor

Autonomous chain reaction

has been successfully exploited by Enrico Fermi.

The success of Fermi generates

great efforts

the government

and the private sector,

leading to the creation of huge factories,

for the separation of uranium

in the town of Oakridge, Tennessee,

and for the production of plutonium

Hanford, Washington

on the banks

Columbia River.

Through this effort was forged great

the necessary hardware

to create an atomic bomb.

The first atomic bomb

was built at Los Alamos,

a secret laboratory

New Mexico

When Dr. Oppenheimer J.R.

arrived to take command

he surrounded himself with an incredible range

stars of the scientific world.

Los Alamos was born on design

the bomb and resolution

many theoretical problems.

Many questions remain unanswered, however.

What are the secrets of this new

form of power and destruction?

Knowledge and Information

all aspects of this new weapon

are essential,

and can not be discovered that

by further testing.

I had a good friend, a Hungarian

10 years older than me, Leo Szilard.

He had a very independent-minded

and a large capacity

foreshadow what would happen.

He saw the years ahead

the importance that the explosives

Nuclear would take.

He was a friend of mine, and I helped him.

For example, I took it to

an important interview with Einstein

where Einstein wrote this

famous letter to Roosevelt.

The letter that started it all.

I myself was interested in

Theoretical Physics

atoms, molecular vibrations,

and knowledge of molarity.

I did not want to do.

But then...

Hitler had not only swallowed

half of Poland,

he had also invaded the West.

Two days later, there was

an invitation to a Pan-American Congress

in which Roosevelt, that I had never

seen before, was to speak.

He made a memorable speech,

about how the world is

really in danger because of Hitler.
