In 1943, top scientist from around the country receive a mysterious and classified letter, it says “Go to 109 East Palace Avenue, Sante Fe, New Mexico. There you will find out how to complete your trip.” Upon arriving they are transported to a lonely mesa, this will be their home for the next two years. Here amongst the sand and rock, cactus and weeds, barracks and shacks, in this primitive place they would change everything, invent new science, win a world war and bring everyone closer to extinction.
This film offers a unique and visually spellbinding look into the making of the first atomic bomb.

any word on this one?

It is a riveting documentary. Excellently produced. Worth every minute of the viewing time. You will come away with a great respect for the people involved and the power of the bomb. What is not mentioned is the accidents that took place during the development that lead to some of the scientists early death.

I was a child of 3 arriving onto the Los Alamos mesa with my FBI Special Agent father, mother and older sister in 1946 within a year after the “Bomb” ended WWII. We were there for almost 2 years. My folks, since passed away, knew most all of the remaining scientist who worked on the project. It was a very special place for discovery into the new world of science. I agree with our decision to use the bomb to end the war since from what we know of Japan at that time they would have fought to the last man, woman and child to honor their deity revered leader. This would also have cost hundreds of thousands more American lives. Japan exists today as a continued power in the developed world because of the bomb, as I see it at least.
I also believe all the Soviet influenced spies who gave that country bomb secrets years early were one and all traitors to the free world.
It is with great reverence and prayer that the unstable atomic capable countries will have the ability to forgo their hatred of anyone different from themselves and give up any notion of using this power for destructive purposes. Two in the forefront are Iran who hates the Jewish people and nation and the closed society of North Korea.
