Manhattan Project: How It Was A World Changer

1362 words - 6 pages

Have you ever wonder how the Manhattan Project changed the world. The Manhattan Project was such a world changer that many events caused it to go under development such as: building the Atomic bomb before the Nazi German regime could, the attack on Pearl Harbor and putting an end to a deadly war. By building the Atomic bomb it would give an edge in defeating Hitler if it was ever needed to be used against them. With the attack on Pearl Harbor it brought the U.S into the war. There was only two ways of ending the war and that was either by invading Japan or dropping the Atomic bombs on two key cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.

With the project nearing the end in the middle to late months of 1945 the first test bomb was getting ready to be set in motion. The money that was spent by the end of the project was about billion dollar. “Over ninety percent of the budget for the project was towards building factories to produce uranium and plutonium for the bom and about ten percent of it was actually used to build the weapons themselves” (Wikipedia). The location of the test site was in the desert of New Mexico and the test site they named “Trinity”. The bomb (which they named the “Gadget”), was attached to a long steel tower, once it was connected and ready to be dropped all the spectators that worked on the project moved to a far distance so the bomb would not hurt them. Nobody really knew the Atomic bombs true power until the day it was detonated. After everyone was settled down they dropped the bomb to be amazed by the sheer power the bomb showed as well as the mushroom cloud that went about forty thousand feet into the air. With the detonation of the test bomb the United States was prepared to make two other bombs that would later be used on Japan in the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and change Human history forever with the use of WMD’s (Weapons of Mass Destruction) against a country.
Even though the United States wasn’t directly involved in World War 2 that would eventually change when the Japanese decide to make a daring attack on an U.S Naval Base so close to the west coast. One of the United States darkest days was soon approaching and wouldn't happen until December 7th, 1941. It was early in the morning on December 7th, 1941 at Pearl Harbor everything seemed completely fine until a Japanese dive bomber came from out of the sky and dropped its torpedo into the water to damage a ship then a swarm of Japanese planes followed from out of the sky and started their reign of terror on “Pearl Harbor that would kill two thousand three hundred soldiers and civilians, destroyed the U.S.S Oklahoma and U.S.S Arizona, sunk or breach twelve battleships and damaged nine others and One hundred sixty aircraft were destroyed and damaged One hundred fifty others” (“Attack At Pearl Harbor”). Even after the terrible attack the U.S able to get itself back on track because “the Pacific Fleet’s aircraft carriers, submarines and most importantly it’s fuel oil storage facilities were emerged unscathed” (“Attack At Pearl Harbor”) which the Japanese did not even think about at the time of the attack. With forces mobilized in the U.S, civilians were all banding together to fight the Japanese for what they had done. It was in Nineteen forty one when the project first started and it wouldn’t be till late Nineteen forty five that the bomb would be tested and dropped. In Nineteen forty five with the death of president Roosevelt
