People think the discovery and use of the early nuclear bombs was a fascinating thing for the inventors, but deep down inside they must have felt a guilt known only to them. I think he even got teary during the interview.

Since the sound was so quiet, i was half expecting this video to be a screamer.

Well, and the fact that the bomb is neither bad nor good; it is the people who wield the power that corrupt it.

when is a bomb NOT bad?

"that man should die from radiation if he hasnt already" If you're going to point out that people think Oppenheimer was a bad person, I'm going to point out that you are a slut.

Taking the man as a whole he was a great person, and once again we have really thick people talking about subjects they have NO IDEA about. Please shut up when you encounter something genuinely of quality. You click better with other types of stuff.

I'm not trying to be mean.

Reminds me of a quote that one of the scientists that the first explosion reportedly said. I culd be mistaken for the source, though...

"I'm sure that the last thing the last man on Earth will see is that cloud."

I find myself agreeing.

Dr.Oppenheimer sites the Bhagavad Gita. This tells me he regrets the decision he was confronted with. It was a no win either way. It would have truly be only a matter of time before someone else developed this terrible weapon.

Oppenheimer did NOT invent it. That was done by a huge team of scientists. It is true, though, that Oppenheimer was in charge of things - but that's very different than inventing the Bomb. In his role, "Oppie" was essentially a "scientific administrator".

By the way, the use of the Bomb to end WWII without needing to invade Japan itself, prevented American 2,000,000 casualties. And, given the Japanese philosophy of fighting to the last man (as was seen on Iwo Jima and Okinawa), God knows how many millions of Japanese lives were saved as well.

The Bhagavad Gita, what Oppenheimer quotes, is actually a very interesting read. A great intoduction to non-Western philosophy, or art. Its broken into sections, so its not that bad ;)

All I know is that the creator regretted creating that bomb for the rest of his life.

I believe this is from the documentary "The Day After Trinity". In that docu, one scientist says they were taking bets on how large the blast would be. One of the options (albeit a slim chance) was that the blast would take out most of New Mexico. I find it a little irresponsible to test a weapon where there is a chance, no matter how remote, that you could kill hundreds of thousands of your own country men. But hey, it helped propel us to the super power and the comfortable life most Americans enjoy today.
I do feel bad for Dr. Oppenheimer. His soul is now forever saddled with the knowledge that he created the one thing that man could quite easily use to distroy the entire planet. Wherever his soul is today, I bet it still weeps for Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Real life Dr. Frankenstein. There were several groups developing the a-bomb at that time though.. If it wasn't him, someone else would have recieved the "honor" sooner or later.

They keep saying most were silent, but I bet you at least one of them said.... "HOLY SH^T!!!"

Most of you don't remember a time where there was two superpowers poised to push the button at any time. I was in the Air Force stationed at Iceland and remember watching the F-15s scramble to intercept the Bear reconnaissance planes.

Scary times.
