Groves (1896–1970). S. atomic bomb, the United States Army issued an official order on August 13, 1942, which established the Manhattan Engineer District. To overcome some early start-up difficulties, on September 17, the army assigned Colonel Leslie R. Groves to take command of the new organization. Groves, the engineering officer who supervised construction of the Pentagon, was promoted to brigadier general on September 23—a rank deemed necessary for him to deal with senior scientists. Assuming command of the entire atomic bomb program, he immediately began to apply his well-known goaloriented style of management.

For example, when the laboratory opened for business in spring 1943, the world’s supply of plutonium would fit on the head of a pin with room to spare. The technical feats accomplished at this secret site provided much of the practical knowledge that allowed nuclear technology to rapidly emerge as a world-changing phenomenon. In early 1943, the properties of uranium were reasonably well understood, those of plutonium much less so, and knowledge of fission explosions was entirely theoretical. The theoretical consensus suggested that exponentially growing chain reactions could be engineered to occur in a supercritical mass of uranium-235 or plutonium-239 with sufficient speed to produce an atomic weapon with powerful energy releases.

Fermi uncorked the bottle and poured a little wine into paper cups for the staff. They had just made scientific history, but their celebration was a muted one. All knew that the next step was the atomic bomb. But were they the first to succeed? Had the German scientists working under Heisenberg already accomplished this feat and more in the race to build an atomic bomb for Hitler? ” “Very friendly,” replied Compton. Impact of CP-1 Fermi and his team were the first to initiate a self-sustaining chain reaction and release the energy in the atomic nucleus in a controlled manner.
