[2014] 7apina: Manhattan Project 7th

The Manahattan Project was a research and development project that developed the first atomic bomb during the World War 2. Major General Leslie Groves was in charge of this project from 1942 to 1946. The army component of this project was designated in the Manhattan Project. This project technically started in 1939 but grew to employ 130,000 people and it would cost the U.S $2 Billion. Over 90% of the cost was for building factories and producing the fassile materials. Research and production took place at more than 30 sites across the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada.
