NJ and the Birth of the Atomic Age

Last year was the 75th anniversary of the creation of the atomic bomb. Recognizing this important milestone in human history, Montclair State University has organized a series of free public events from October to December 2021 that examines NJ’s critical role in providing the scientific talent and resources for the development of the atomic bomb, its strategic value during the Cold War and ethical issues related to nuclear use and proliferation.
