The Trinity test of July 16, 1945 was arguably history’s greatest scientific experiment. It represented not only the capstone of the Manhattan Project, but the culmination of decades of discovery in physics, chemistry, metallurgy, and other scientific fields. The technology tested at Trinity would later be used to help bring history’s deadliest conflict, World War II, to an abrupt and victorious conclusion. In this two-part series, Mr. Carr follows up on his 18 February webinar “Introduction to U.S. Nuclear Testing: 1945 - 1992” by discussing the scientific discovery and technological innovation that are part of Trinity’s legacy.
