    The history of the atomic bomb dates back to the early 1900 s when Einstein s theory of relativity proved a basis for understanding nuclear energy and showed that the atom contained vast energy. This energy seemed beyond men s grasp until the late 1930 s. In 1939 scientists succeeded in splitting the atoms of uranium by bombarding them with neutrons. They found that the split atoms released neutrons and energy. Physicists found that the fission of these atoms could produce a chain reaction. In t...

    The Atomic Bomb It was the thoughts of Albert Einstein that led to the creation of the atomic bomb. Albert E. predicted that mass could be converted into energy; this was later confirmed in 1932 by two scientists named John D. Crock fort and Ernest R. Walton. The way the atomic bomb works is by fission. Fission is the process of splitting atoms to create energy. Fission was discovered in 1938. The material they split to create the energy is called uranium. Unfortunately, uranium was very hard t...

    Through the centuries, man has tried many attempts in inventing a mass killing mechanism. Alas, in 1945, such a mechanism was created. The atomic bomb was created after many years of the study of atoms. Finally, a way to split the atoms was born. Germany was the first to try, using uranium-235 to make a bomb. They discovered nuclear fission in late 1938. Efforts failed, but were picked up by the United States. Albert Einstein, although credited as the father of the atomic bomb, only lent suppor...
