About this title


Presents the life and accomplishments of the director of the Manhattan Project, focusing on his involvement with the development of the atom bomb.

From Booklist:

The brilliant physicist who led the nuclear research at Los Alamos and the making of the atomic bomb is the subject of this compelling biography in the new Inventors Who Changed the World series. The science of the secret project is exciting, including how the new theory of quantum mechanics turned classical Newtonian physics upside down, and throughout the book, the clear, spacious design includes lots of images from approved Web sites for readers who want to do research on "How Atoms Work," "How Much Uranium Is Needed to Make a Bomb," and much more. The social and political issues are just as intense: the secret community that developed the bomb; the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki; and then, in the 1950s, the removal of Oppenheimer's security clearance and accusations that he was a Communist. Includes both black-and-white and color photos, chapter notes, bibliography, activities, and suggested Web sites. Rochman, Hazel
