July 16, 1945 marks the date when the highly secretive Manhattan Project concludes, as the atom bomb is successfully tested in Alamogordo, New Mexico. A giant mushroom cloud stretches 40,000 feet into the air, generating the power of 15,000 to 20,000 tons of TNT -- and well surpassing the research cost of 6,000 dollars for a total of 2 billion dollars. Among the scientists participating in the project are: Albert Einstein, Enrico Fermi, Richard Feynman, J. Robert Openheimer, and Harold Urey. With the end of the World War, II, Germany is no longer a target, but Japan will be the new one.
