The Manhattan Project: How It Came to Be
with Peter Reilly
The course will start with an overview of a nuclear armed world and a “third grade” introduction to the science of the atom and then quickly move to the Manhattan Project story, the story of how the United States first developed the atom bomb. How did the United States become the first nation to perfect this instrument of destruction, who were some of the people involved, where did it happen and how did others follow. What was everyone thinking back then?
Peter Reilly has presented a number of well-received classes at Senior College on a variety of topics. He holds a BS and MBA from Monmouth University
