Robert Oppenheimer, 1956

“To End All War: Oppenheimer & The Atomic Bomb” is a new documentary from NBC News Studios “Exploring how one man’s relentless drive and invention of the atomic bomb changed the nature of war forever, led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and unleashed mass hysteria.” This portrait is included in the film.

The film is the true story of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer’s journey from driven and ambitious scientist to remorseful and tormented man struck hard by the gravity of what he had done. Oppenheimer was tapped to direct the weapons laboratory at Los Alamos during the infamous Manhattan Project, the government research project formed to create the atomic bomb. The narrative centerpiece of “To End All War” is the Trinity test in the New Mexico desert on July 16, 1945.

On NBC/Peacock in the USA.
