The Manhattan project

In late 1941, the American effort to design and build an atomic bomb received its code name — the Manhattan project.

By the summer of 1945, Oppenheimer was ready to test the first bomb. On July 16, 1945, at Trinity Site near Alamogordo, New Mexico, scientists of the Manhattan Project readied themselves to watch the detonation of the world’s first atomic bomb.
