ATOMIC BOMBS
[ Also see Physics War Weapons ]

I made one great mistake in my life-when I signed the letter to President Roosevelt recommending that atom bombs be made but there was some justification-the danger that the Germans would make them.
      - Albert Einstein

Nor do I take into account a danger of starting a chain reaction of a scope great enough to destroy part or all of the planet. But it is not necessary to imagine the earth being destroyed like a nova by a stellar explosion to understand vividly the growing scope of atomic war and to recognize that unless another war is it is likely to ring destruction on a scale never before held possible, and even now hardly conceived, and that little civilization would survive it.
      - Albert Einstein

The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking . . . the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.
      - Albert Einstein

The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one.
      - Albert Einstein

. . . I am become death, destroyer of worlds.
  [Often quoted as: I am become death, shatterer of worlds.]
      - J. Robert Oppenheimer,
        after 1st nuclear explosion, citing the Bhagavad Gita (...Death, the shatterer of Worlds)
