The paper talks about the Manhattan Project that began in 1939, with the goal of planning and designing the world's first nuclear weapon. The paper looks at Trinity Site, located in a remote part of New Mexico, which was selected for testing the bomb. The paper describes the Trinity test and explains that this test in fact put an abrupt end to World War Two, as the successful implosion sparked an enthusiastic attack on two Japanese targets: Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The paper contends, however, that with hardly any evidence and only one plutonium test at Trinity, the United States government foolishly launched nuclear weapons at Japan.
