Los Alamos: Beginning of an era

This is the story of one of the greatest scientific achievements of all time. It is the story of the founding of the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory and its successful secret mission to create the first atomic bomb, the weapon that ended World War II.

-Joseph O. Hirschfelder, chemist
