Late one night, while eating an orange and talking to another scientist, Seth Neddermeyer (a scientist) thought of an idea called implosion. This was probably the one idea that the atomic bomb is centered around.Without implosion, the atomic bomb could not be created.At times, Oppenhiemer and Grooves had some nasty arguments over policies.
The scientists were given 19 months to complete their mission.
Most of them complained that it could not be done, that it was not enough time.
Things such as the guard dogs and the FBI talking to the families of the scientists bothered them greatly.
Also the scientists feared that Germany was ahead of them in creating the bomb.
Under the leadership of Oppenheimer the work and research began. They were faced with the problems such as weight, velocity, and detonation.
To make such a bomb they needed materials heaving enough to weight tip the biggest cranes in the world.
If they had a disagreement, Oppenheimer would threaten to leave the project and take his scientists with him.
Groves knew if this occurred then the project would never be finished.
There job was to create the atomic bomb and to do nothing else but that.
They were to refer to bomb as the gadget or devise for security reasons.
