As the blast went off, Oppenheimer became aware not only the terrifying power of the nuclear bomb but also our inability to entirely comprehend the implications of this invention. His attempts to warn the public were silenced and ridiculed, though today, over 65 years later, his voice is a haunting reminder of our very real nuclear threat.

    Julius Robert Oppenheimer (April 22, 1904 -- February 18, 1967) was an American theoretical physicist and professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley. He is among the persons who are often called the "father of the atomic bomb" for their role in the Manhattan Project, the World War II project that developed the first nuclear weapons.[2] The first atomic bomb was detonated on July 16, 1945, in the Trinity test in New Mexico; Oppenheimer remarked later that it brought to mind words from the Bhagavad Gita: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." http://www.bhagavad-gita.org/Gita/verse-16-19.html After the war he became a chief advisor to the newly created United States Atomic Energy Commission and used that position to lobby for international control of nuclear po...

Julius Robert Oppenheimer (April 22, 1904 -- February 18, 1967) was an American theoretical physicist and professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley. He is among the persons who are often called the "father of the atomic bomb" for their role in the Manhattan Project, the World War II project that developed the first nuclear weapons.[2] The first atomic bomb was detonated on July 16, 1945, in the Trinity test in New Mexico; Oppenheimer remarked later that it brought to mind words from the Bhagavad Gita: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." http://www.bhagavad-gita.org/Gita/verse-16-19.html After the war he became a chief advisor to the newly created United States Atomic Energy Commission and used that position to lobby for international control of nuclear power to avert nuclear proliferation and an arms race with the Soviet Union. After provoking the ire of many politicians with his outspoken opinions during the Second Red Scare, he had his security clearance revoked in a much-publicized hearing in 1954, and was effectively stripped of his direct political influence; he continued to lecture, write and work in physics. Nine years later President John F. Kennedy awarded (and Lyndon B. Johnson presented) him with the Enrico Fermi Award as a gesture of political rehabilitation. Oppenheimer's notable achievements in physics include the Born--Oppenheimer approximation for molecular wavefunctions, work on the theory of electrons and positrons, the Oppenheimer--Phillips process in nuclear fusion, and the first prediction of quantum tunneling. With his students he also made important contributions to the modern theory of neutron stars and black holes, as well as to quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, and the interactions of cosmic rays. As a teacher and promoter of science, he is remembered as a founding father of the American school of theoretical physics that gained world prominence in the 1930s. After World War II, he became director of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Oppenheimer was born in New York City on April 22, 1904, to Julius Oppenheimer, a wealthy Jewish textile importer who had immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1888, and Ella Friedman, a painter. In 1912 the family moved to an apartment on the eleventh floor of 155 Riverside Drive, near West 88th Street, Manhattan, an area known for luxurious mansions and town houses. Their art collection included works by Pablo Picasso and Édouard Vuillard, and at least three original paintings by Vincent van Gogh. A course on thermodynamics taught by Percy Bridgman attracted him to experimental physics. He graduated summa cum laude in three years. Oppenheimer's diverse interests sometimes interrupted his focus on projects. In 1933 he learned Sanskrit and met the Indologist Arthur W. Ryder at Berkeley. He read the Bhagavad Gita in the original Sanskrit and later he cited it as one of the books that most shaped his philosophy of life.His close confidant and colleague, Nobel Prize winner Isidor Rabi, later gave his own interpretation: Oppenheimer was over educated in those fields, which lie outside the scientific tradition, such as his interest in religion, in the Hindu religion in particular, which resulted in a feeling of mystery of the universe that surrounded him like a fog. He saw physics clearly, looking toward what had already been done, but at the border he tended to feel there was much more of the mysterious and novel than there actually was ... [he turned] away from the hard, crude methods of theoretical physics into a mystical realm of broad intuition. The joint work of the scientists at Los Alamos resulted in the first artificial nuclear explosion near Alamogordo on July 16, 1945, on a site that Oppenheimer code named "Trinity" in mid-1944. He later said this name was from one of John Donne's Holy Sonnets. Oppenheimer later recalled that, while witnessing the explosion, he thought of a verse from the Hindu holy book, the Bhagavad Gita (XI,12): If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one ... Years later he would explain that another verse had also entered his head at that time: namely, the famous verse: "kālo'smi lokakṣayakṛtpravṛddho lokānsamāhartumiha pravṛttaḥ" (XI,32),which he translated as "I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Robert_Oppenheimer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuRvBoLu4t0 https://www.youtube.com/user/bhagavadgita4u?feature=watch

we waited until the blast had passed, walked out of the shelter and then it was extremely solemn... if the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky that would be like the splendor of the mighty one... the optimist thinks this is the best of all possible worlds and the pessimist knows it. -j. robert oppenheimer we were lying there, very tense, in the early dawn, and there were just a few streaks of gold in the east; you could see your neighbor very dimly. those ten seconds were the longest ten seconds that i ever experienced. suddenly, there was an enormous flash of light, the brightest light i have ever seen or that i think anyone has ever seen. it blasted; it pounced; it bored its way right through you. it was a vision which was seen with more than the eye. it was seen to last forever. you would wish it to stop; altogether it lasted about two seconds. finally it was over, diminishing, and we looked toward the place where the bomb had been; there was an enormous ball of fire which grew and grew and it rolled as it grew; it went up into the air, in yellow flashes and into scarlet and green. it looked menacing. it seemed to come toward one. a new thing had just been born... -isidor rabi at the instant of the explosion i was looking directly at it, with no eye protection of any kind... the grandeur and magnitude of the phenomenon were completely breath-taking. -robert serber we wore welder's glasses. the thing that got me was not the flash but the blinding heat of a bright day on your face in the cold desert morning. it was like opening a hot oven with the sun coming out like a sunrise. -philip morrison jezt komme, feuer! -friedrich hölderlin il y a là cendre -jacques derrida asche, asche,  asche. nacht. nacht - und - nacht. -paul celan tu n'as rien vu à hiroshima. rien. j'ai tout vu. tout... -marguerite duras for the gaze of music that leaves it behind, it is rounded to a spherethat can be overviewd, as in the meantime it has already been photographed from space, not the center of creation but something minute and ephemeral. to such experience is allied the melancholy hope for other stars, inhabited by happier beings than humans. but the earth that has grown remote to itself is without the hope the stars once promised. it is sinking into empty galaxies. on it lies beauty as the refrection of past hope, which fills the dying eye until it is frozen below the flakes of unbound space the moment of delight before such beauty dares to withstand its abandonment to disenchanted nature. that metaphysics is no longer possible becomes the ultimate metaphysics. -theodor. w. adorno hasel and gretel are  alive and  well and they're living in berlin she is  a  cocktail  waitress he had a part in  a  fassbinder film and  they  sit  around  at  night now drinking       schnapps   and    gin and she says : hansel,           you're really bringing me down and he says   : gretel,           you  can  really  be  a bitch    he says : i've   wasted  my   life           on our stupid          legend           when my             one           and         only   love           was the wicked      witch.   she said :  what is  history ? and he said : history is an angel        being blown backwards        into the        future   he said : history is a   pile  of    debris            and   the   angel   wants to    go back and fix things to repair the things that have  been  broken but there is a storm blowing from paradaise and  the storm keeps blowing  the angel backwards into     the     future. and this storm, this   storm is   called progress -laurie anderson (for walter benjamin) staring at a burning fire isn't salvation sympathy for the devil isn't salvation lucid ambiguity isn't salvation bla bla bla bla bla bla isn't saltation discovering there is no salvation is salvation -bernardo bertolucci taken from "the atomic age" video collection. oppenheimer's aria :: ryuichi sakamoto / reference : olivier messiaen / visual : shiro takatani (dumb type) http://www.sitesakamoto.com/oppenheimer_single.swf
