The recent movie "Oppenheimer" by C. Nolan brought to the fore the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer who, more than any other physicist of his time, embodies the human crisis of scientists who, while meaning good, created weapons capable of wiping out the whole human race.
12During the first meeting, I shall present the necessary introductory material, and we shall see and comment together the movie “The Day After Trinity”, on the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer. We will meet again to view and comment the movie “Trinity and Beyond: the Atomic Bomb Movie”, which collects declassified footage of the numerous atomic tests and several interviews to some of the scientists and engineers who developed atomic weapons during the difficult years of the Cold War.
