    • This isn’t true. I spent half a year living there and learned the history of the town. It is true that the town of Oak Ridge, Tennessee did build atomic bombs for the war, but they knew they were doing. The town has a pretty interesting history. A cool fact about it is the road system (part 1)

    • So this is kinda misleading in more ways than one way, but it should be known that Los Alamos was where the bombs creation is credited since that’s where it was built and where Oppenheimer, the “father of the atomic bomb”, was living and working.
