This course explores the development of the atomic bomb during the Manhattan project. Nuclear Physics is introduced in a historical context from the discovery of radioactivity in 1896 to the discovery of nuclear fission in Germany in 1938; this historical approach allows students to understand how scientific knowledge is built up over time.
