When researching the history of the Atomic Bomb, we were all very surprised at the dilemmas, emotions, and great decisions that had to be made in order to eventually drop it. Though it was difficult to complete, the experience not only expanded our knowledge about the “A” bomb but also deepened our respect for Harry Truman, the troops of World War II, and the effected people of Japan.
We began the research portion of our project by separating the different website pages to specific people. Though this was less of a “group” project because of the separation aspect, we were able to gain more information faster. This also insured that everybody was doing equal work and that we each understood the true importance of the Atomic Bomb.
After completing our pages we gave each other’s suggestions and feedback. This widened our knowledge as well as it offered us to understand more that one subtopic bout the “A” Bomb. We looked for pictures that related to our pages and even found a picture of one of Albert Einstein’s letter to Harry Truman regarding the possibilities to construct a multi-powerful bomb.
The Atomic was one of the largest turning points ever recorded in history. This blob of massive destruction fired the interest of many world powers and scientists. After the bomb was dropped, both science and military warfare would change forever. This also was the final step to ending World War II. The “A” Bomb caused so much devastation to Japan that they had no choice but to surrender. After Japan had left, there was no nation a part of the Axis Powers left. After the bomb was dropped psychotic philosophies and evil ideas died with World War II.
We choose this topic originally because it was simple to relate as a turning point in history. Though, when we began researching we discovered that the Atomic Bomb was more than that. We became instantly drawn to the topic and were mesmerized by the importance and the ancestry of the Bomb. What seemed like an “easy A” became an incredibly interesting history lesson. The choice of creating a website about the Atomic Bomb is something that we would never change. The experience was nothing less than rapidly enjoyable.
