Ultimate Weapon: Oppenheimer and the Atomic Bomb

Loading...
"J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Father of the A-bomb, creates the world's deadliest weapon of mass destruction--with the "power of 1,000 suns" it can annihilate tens of thousands in a moment. His scientific brilliance is the power behind the atom bombs used against the Japanese during WWII, but his conscience led him to question the invention that helped end the war. Watch as Oppenheimer paces anxiously in New Mexico while the crew on a B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, deploys the massive "Little Boy" bomb towards the Aioi Bridge in Hiroshima. The resulting massive loss of life leads Oppenheimer to rethink the way in which nuclear energy was to be used."--Http://media.aetv.com.

The Secret of Tuxedo Park

Loading...
In the fall of 1940, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered a small team of scientists on a clandestine transatlantic mission to deliver his country's most valuable military secret, a revolutionary radar component, not to the U.S. government, but to a mysterious Wall Street tycoon, Alfred Lee Loomis. Using his connections, his money, and his brilliant scientific mind, Loomis and his team of scientists developed radar technology that would arguably play a more decisive role than any other weapon in the war. The Secret of Tuxedo Park tells a long-overlooked story of an individual who helped alter the course of history in World War II.
