On July 16, 1946, seventy years ago today, the first Atomic Bomb was detonated in the desert near Alamogordo, New Mexico  This marked a successful step forward in the Manhattan Project and a pivotal point in the terror and triumph of nuclear energy.  A couple of years ago, I read a very interesting and sobering book on the topic, “The Making of the Atomic Bomb.” I highly recommend it.
