History of the Atomic Bomb and The Manhattan Project

History of the Atomic Bomb and The Manhattan Project | History | Scoop.it
Albert Einstein and other scientists told Roosevelt of Nazi Germany efforts to build an atomic bomb - the United States Government began the Manhattan Project that produced the first atomic bomb.
ChristopherBahnisch's insight:

This is an interesting article from about.com describing the process that had to be taken before the first atomic bombs.  It also provides a link to a warning letter composed by Einstein.  The article not only gives historical details but also outlines some very basic chemistry required for producing atomic weapons.

2.  Referring to the text, if you were in power in Germany through the events leading up to the First World War, how might you have avoided conflict?
