On July 16, 1945, the United States conducted the first test of the atomic bomb at at the Trinity bomb site in New Mexico. The new weapon would quickly become a focus point in the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.
The official U.S. development of the atomic bomb began with the beginning of the Manhattan Project in August 1942. The project brought together scientists from multiple countries to study the feasibility of building an atomic bomb capable of incredible destructive power. The project proceeded with no small degree of urgency, since the American government had been warned that Nazi Germany had also began a program to develop an atomic weapon. By July 1945, a prototype weapon was ready for testing. Although Germany had surrendered, the war against Japan was still in progress. On July 16, the first atomic bomb was detonated in the desert near the Los Alamos research facility. Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, director of the project, watched the mushroom cloud rise into the New Mexico sky. “Now I am become death, destroyer of worlds,” he said, reciting a passage from an ancient Hindu text.
Truman and many other U.S. officials hoped that possession of the atomic bomb would be America’s trump card in dealing with the Soviets after the war. Use of the weapon against the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945 demonstrated the destructive force of the atomic bomb. The American atomic monopoly did not last long, though. By 1949, the Soviets had created their own atomic bomb, beginning the nuclear arms race.
