The Manhattan Project was developed in an effort to protect the United States during World War II.  From 1942 to 1946, the project included three labs set up in different parts of the United States, Hanford, Washington, Oak Ridge Tennessee, and Los Alamos New Mexico.

The Manhattan Project employed more than 130,000 people and cost nearly US$2 billion in 1942. Two types of atomic bombs were developed during World War II:  a simple gun-type fission weapon using uranium-235, an isotope that makes up only 0.7 percent of natural uranium. Most of uranium separation work was performed at the Oak Ridge, Tennessee facility, while nuclear reactors to enrich uranium was constructed at Oak Ridge and Hanford facilities.

The first nuclear device ever detonated was an implosion-type bomb at the Trinity test, conducted at New Mexico’s Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range on 16 July 1945. Little Boy, a gun-type weapon, and Fat Man, an implosion-type weapon, were used in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II.


After the end of World War II, the Manhattan Project conducted weapons testing at Bikini Atoll and Marshall Islands. as part of the build up to the Cold War, the project started developing new weapons, promoted the development of the network of national laboratories, supported medical research into radiology and laid the foundations for the nuclear navy.
