J. Robert Oppenheimer was an American theoretical physicist and one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century. In 1942, Oppenheimer was appointed the scientific director of the Manhattan Project, based at Los Alamos, New Mexico. The project aimed to develop an atomic bomb before the Nazis could do so and they successfully proceeded the Trinity Test. The devastating power of the atomic bomb and the ethical implications of its use weighed heavily on Oppenheimer. After witnessing the destructive force unleashed by the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, he famously quoted the Bhagavad Gita, saying, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

From University of California, Berkeley to Los Alamos Laboratory, Oppenheimer worked as a theoretical physicist in this whole life. All these equations and formulas became the rhythm of his life.
