Atomic Bomb August 6th, 1945, 70,000 lives were ended in a matter of seconds. The United States had dropped an atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima. Today many argue over whether or not the US should have taken such a drastic measure. Was it entirely necessary that we drop such a devastating weapon? Yes, it was. First, look at what was going on at the time the decision was made. The U.S had been fighting a massive war since 1941. Morale was most likely low, and resources were probably at the sam

In civilization there have been few individuals that leave a legacy of ideas that have impacted on society forever. Albert Einstein the German-born scientist was one of the gifted few. Despite being one of the greatest thinkers ever to grace the world with his presence, Einstein flunked out of grade school miserably (Poole). He was a terrible English student, because of his poor grammar skills (Poole). At one point a teacher actually told Einstein’s parents that he was mentally challenged. He wa
The Atomic Bomb
The Atomic Bomb
The Atomic Bomb The atomic bomb has been a major turning point in history. It started out when Roosevelt signed a document for a group of scientists to start creating the bomb. The scientists thought they could purify uranium 235 to be used as a form of nuclear warfare. The name of the top secret project was The Manhattan Project named after the Manhattan Engineer District of the US Army Corps of Engineers due to the great amount of early research done in New York. Scientists working on the atom

What happened in World War II?
What happened in World War II? The war didn\'t just start one day. Many events led up to this vivid memory. The whole thing is based on propaganda and beliefs of a man named Aldof Hitler. In January 1933 he became chancellor of Germany. As soon as he was in office he put laws on the Jews community. Germany became obsessed with power and soon they are invading Poland, Britain, Norway, Holland, Denmark, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. War was on. The war was a war on the world. Throughout Europe

What is war? Webster’s Encyclopedic Dictionary describes it as: an armed clash between nations or factions in the same nation. That’s how a dictionary describes it, but in fact, it is something much worse. War is the epitome of what is wrong with human nature. War is devastating. Perhaps no other war was as devastating as World War II. (1)World War II killed more people, destroyed more property, disrupted more lives, and had more far-reaching consequences than any other war in history. It bro

The Manhattan Project
The Manhattan Project In the months following the bombing of Pearl Harbor the Manhattan Project--the name given to the atomic bomb program because its original offices were in Manhattan--grew very quickly. And although the Army had been involved since June of 1942, it was just beginning to realize that someone was going to have to be put in overall charge. The man chosen was Leslie Richard Groves, a 46-year-old colonel in the Army Corps of Engineers. While he was a competent engineer, Groves was

HOW USEFUL IS THE TERM ‘CULTURAL REVOLUTION’ WHEN APPLIED TO THE SIXTIES? I propose to define and to argue the question How useful is the term ‘Cultural Revolution’ when applied to the Sixties? My objective is to include examples from history, history of science and religion.

The main part of an atomic bomb is of course an atom. So that is what I’m going to say first. The Atom Atoms are everything. It is your paper, your house,
