This is a special colloquium. It will be introduced by Prof. Latorre, from the University of Barcelona. It consists of a film described below, and based on fascinating interviews with the last living theorist from the Theory Division of the Manhattan project. After the projection we will have some general discussion.
Please bring along all those interested in this fundamental historical moment, and those also interested in having discussion on nuclear energy and nuclear weapons.
Nobel laureate Prof. Roy J. Glauber is the last living scientist from the Theory Division of the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos. His clear, fluent and articulate narration brings first hand information on the life at Los Alamos, the main scientific characters there, the Trinity test of the first ever nuclear explosion, the bombing of Japan and the political aftermath of the project. Glauber's account is documented with audiovisual material recently declassified from the Los Alamos Archive.
