Oppenheimer Basic Story
Christopher Nolan’s new film “Oppenheimer” is based on the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, a physicist who played a key role in the Manhattan Project during World War II.
The Manhattan Project was a research and development program led by the United States from 1942 to 1946, with the goal of creating the first nuclear weapons.
The project was initiated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939 in response to concerns that scientists working for Adolf Hitler were developing their own nuclear weapons.
The project was initially led by a team of scientists and military officials who were tasked with investigating the potential of uranium as a weapon. After the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, the project became a military initiative led by Lieutenant General Leslie Groves of the Army Corps of Engineers.
