4 In conclusion The Manhattan project was one of the most important and expensive projects ever done in the United States to this time. The drip of the bomb probably could have been stopped but the US decided to take the action which killed thousands and injured millions. The dropping of the bomb forever changed the meaning of war for all citizens of the world.

The economy was utterly a disaster. The atomic bomb was created to be mass destructive. This was self-evident when the United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan. This decision was made by Harry S. Truman. Knowing how an atomic bomb is created, its' history and the effects it had on the economy could help people realize the reasoning behind such a bomb.
World War II had many events that changed the world we live in today. There were two major events which were the Holocaust and dropping two atomic drops on the Japanese civilians. They both were reasoning with mass killing and also, mass caulsitaites. Holocaust was Adolf Hitler way to eliminate the enemy. World War II saw new military technology such as the atomic bomb.
The technology of building the atomic bomb has spurred some useful innovations that can be applied through the use of nuclear power. The fear of a potential nuclear attack had been heightened by the media and its release of movies impacting on public opinion and fear of nuclear devastation. The lives lost after the detonation of the atomic bombs have become warning signs that changed global thinking and caused preventative actions. The Atomic Bomb The devastation brought about by the atomic bomb has caused fear among all the people that have realized the potential destructive power of its invention. The atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945 completely obliterated both cities (Lanouette 30).
The atomic bomb was released upon the world, and decades later, nearly every country would have access to nuclear weapons. The war had been won, but it opened up a gateway to a new kind of war, the destruction such a battle could reach nearly unimaginable in its depths. The citizens of the U.S. celebrated, laughing with joy and congratulating their military. Across the world Japanese citizens wept for their fallen brethren. Mankind has warred against itself since the very dawn of its creation.
When most people think of a nuclear threat, they think of a nuclear attack from a foreign nation. In reality, the largest nuclear threat comes not from foreign attack, but from a much closer enemy: nuclear power. Nuclear power is very dangerous, and should be done away with. The nuclear age dawned in 1945, when the United States dropped atomic bombs on two Japanese cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The bombing had at least two effects: the Japanese surrender, bringing World War II to a swift end; and many people in the United States, especially scientists and officials involved in the development of atomic bombs, were awed, frightened and filled with guilt over the death and destruction they had caused.
The Atomic Bomb Background of the Atomic Bomb It was during the Second World War that the United States became a world power, thanks in a large part to its monopoly on atomic weapons. The atomic bomb is a weapon with great explosive power that results form the sudden release of energy upon the splitting, or fission of the nuclei of such heavy elements as plutonium or uranium. This new destructive force wrecked havoc on two Japanese cities and caused the end of World War II. It also saved thousands of American lives because a ground invasion of Japan was no longer necessary. The decision to create the bombs was that of United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt under a secret military project that was called The Manhattan Project.
The victory they needed wouldn’t have been possible without the atomic bomb. The use of the atomic bomb had saved many casualties and stopped an exhausting war. Since then we have learned many useful facts about nuclear power and bombs. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a military necessity and a scientific experiment.
All around the world, people set up disarmament movements, which called on governments to destroy their nuclear weapons and protested against nuclear testing. The disarmament movement recieved strong support from both Germany and Japan, two nations that had learned the painful costs of total warfare. Today, even though such devastating things happened in the past, that was the life of war. There were many devastating facts on this topic, and still are. But the most facts that people wonder about are the following: the reasons for this attack, Who made the decision and why, What are the names of the Atomic bombs, and what was the outcome of this decision?
When looking through American history, one of the most memorable and darkest moments was the end to World War II. Yes, it ended a devastating war but it took the sacrifice of thousands of Japanese lives in order for that to happen. This massacre of human lives was caused by the American forces dropping atomic bombs on two cities in Japan(Hiroshima and Nagasaki). The Manhattan Project was the name of the developmental process of creating the atomic bombs. The Manhattan Project was believed to be necessary due to the prolonged tension caused by the war between the United States and Japan.
