Summary
Roy Glauber (born in 1925) – an eminent American theoretical physicist, researcher of the interaction of light and matter, co-winner of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics. Glauber was a child of the Great Depression and a prodigy. At the age of 16 he became a student at Harvard University. Two years later he was enlisted as one of the youngest scientists of the Manhattan Project whose objective was to create the first nuclear weapons. He later worked at the Institute for Advanced Study and at the California Institute of Technology. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.The Bomb that Shook the World, On July 16, 1945, in the New Mexico desert, in a flash “brighter than a thousand suns” the post-war order was established. The Trinity test had a handful of eyewitnesses and of those just a few took part in the creation of the weapons which less than a month later would destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki. One of them was Roy Glauber. This film is the result of many hours of conversations with him, an erudite scientist blessed with a memory as sharp as a razor. The film presents an extraordinary and deeply personal account of those crucial events. The director, Karol Jałochowski, a science journalist at POLITYKA weekly and Outreach Fellow of the National University of Singapore, in this film combines the skills of journalism and filmmaking. The documentary was shot at the locations of Los Alamos (where scientists worked on the creation of the atomic bomb), Alamogordo (the Trinity test site) and Santa Fe. Recently declassified footage and photographs from the archives of the Los Alamos National Laboratory are a vital addition to the film
