Home Movies From The Manhattan Project

Newly unveiled — a beautiful, haunting glimpse at life inside the carefree, secret 1940s desert summer camp that birthed the atom bomb:

In 1943, the top scientists from the United States and other nations gathered in Los Alamos, NM for the Manhattan Project. Among them was physicist Hugh Bradner. With informal permission from the U.S. Army, he shot a collection of home movies of life in a place that officially didn’t exist, and of people working on a project that ultimately changed history. His footage represents the only look at life in the Los Alamos area during that time.
