- Tour the once-secret facilities where America created the atomic bomb.
- Features declassified material and recollections from those who worked on the project.
In 1939, a group of scientists--Albert Einstein among them--warned FDR of the possibility that Hitler's Germany might be close to producing an atomic bomb. Roosevelt issued an order--the U.S. had to do it first. It was the most costly and labor-intensive engineering program ever undertaken, but within three years they were well on their way to creating a hidden world of secret cities and classified nuclear facilities.
Six decades later, LOST WORLD returns to the places where history was made, visiting three top-secret cities in isolated parts of Tennessee, New Mexico, and Washington State. Using classified material, eyewitness testimony, and cutting-edge graphic technology, we recreate the secret world of the Manhattan Project.
