December 1938: as fascism spreads across Europe, two German chemists discover the processes of atomic fission. In Berkeley, California, a group of radical theoretical physicists, recognising the devastating potential of this new science, race to complete the largest scientific undertaking in human history – a weapon that draws its power from the building blocks of the universe.
Originally written for the RSC, science, politics and humanity clash in the propulsive story of the Manhattan Project and the development of the world’s first nuclear bombs.
