Website created to provide an immersive experience in the history of the making of the first atomic bomb under the leadership of J. Robert Oppenheimer. The website offers scientific, historical and cultural context  for composer John Adams’s new opera, Doctor Atomic, which premiered at the San Francisco Opera House in 2005. The site explicates big issues: the science of fission, the backdrop of the war leading to the decision to use the bomb and the tension among the scientists about the frightening potential they were creating.
