How big is Manhattan?
The Manhattan Project was the top secret military endeavor tobuild, and detonate the first atomic bomb. It was based at LosAlamos, New Mexico and headed by Dr. J. Robert Oppen…heimer. Thecompletion came on July 16, 1945 when the team exploded the firstAtomic Bomb (Gadget) on the St. Augustine Plain at what is nowknown as the Trinity site, in central New Mexico. This site is opento the public for escorted tours twice a year: the first weekend inApril and the first weekend in October. Development of the first U.S. nuclear weapons (Gadget, Little Boy,Fatman) was led by the U.S Army and Los Alamos National Laboratory.Dr. Oppenheimer was the lead scientist, General Groves was thecommander and executive in charge. The project employed a large number of people in other places suchas Oak Ridge, Tennessee and Hanford, Washington, where the fissilematerials (80% enriched uranium at Oak Ridge, plutonium at Hanford)were made. It was the WWII codename from 1942 to 1947 for the creation of theAtomic Bomb which was a Joint Canadian, United Kingdom, and UnitedStates effort under the control of the US Army Corps of Engineers.It was termed the Manhattan Engineering District to mask the largeexpenditures needed. In truth it had little to do with the islandof Manhattan or with Manhattan Kansas. It involved over 130,000people and spent two billion US dollars at such diverse locationsas Oak Ridge Tennessee, Columbia University, the University ofCalifornia Berkeley, the University of Chicago, Hanford Washington,Wendover Utah, Wright Field Ohio, Muroc Army Airfield California(now Edwards AFB), and Los Alamos New Mexico. The military Manhattan Project ended in 1947 when itsresponsibilities were turned over to the newly created civilianAtomic Energy Commission.
