Manhattan Project

This bad boy explosion isn't just from any old bomb, this is a goddamn atomic bomb. In fact this is the first human engineered nuclear explosion. The Manhattan Project was a top secret coalition between the U.S. Canada and Britain to create the first nuclear explosives. Started in 1942 and ending in 1946 this program would eventually dole out the "Fat Man" and the "Little Boy", the two nuclear ordnances that found their way to the mainland of Japan during World War II. These two bombs were respectively made of plutonium and uranium isotopes. Do you think this program was created for the greater good or was it a terrible use of human innovation?
These bros seemed like they were fine with their decision.. one that would ultimately cost thousands of lives.
