The Atomic Bomb.
The atomic bomb was a great advance in science, that also became known as one of the most deadly and destructive weapons of all time. A weapon that the world may not have been ready for.
On August 2, 1939, just before WW2, Albert Einstein wrote to the President of the United States informing him of news that would change the field of science and warfare forever. He and others informed President Roosevelt that there were efforts in Nazi Germany to purify Uranium - 235 (U - 235), which could possibly end up being used in the construction of the world's first atomic bomb. Shortly following this news, the United States began what came to be known as the Manhattan Project, a project committed to the research and production of an atomic bomb(Documentation 2).
