What is the buzz on the movie Oppenheimer? Who is J.. Robert Oppenheimer?


The movie Oppenheimer, is directed by Christopher Nolan based on the real life story of J. Robert Oppenheimer. Robert Oppenheimer was a theoretical physicist, who worked on the Manhattan Project. During the Manhattan Project, Oppenheimer was director of the Los Alamos Laboratory and responsible for the research and design of an atomic bomb


Oppenheimer is known as the Father of Atomic Bomb. He is famous because he spearheaded the project to create nuclear weapons which came to fruition during World War 2. On July 16,1945 he witnessed the successful trinity test (codename for first detonation of atomic bomb) at Alamogordo, New Mexico. 


His first words reportedly were: “I guess it worked.” He later famously recalled that the history-defining moment had brought to mind words from a sacred Hindu text:

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds’. I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

Less than a month later, America dropped two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, effectively bringing an end to the Second World War.

People are eagerly waiting to watch the biopic of Robert Oppenheimer. I guess I’m one of them as well…I want to watch it as well as soon as possible.
