On July 28, 1914 the Great War began, but no one had any idea how much this war would change everyone’s lives. World War I would last over four years, and would claim anywhere from nine million lives to thirteen million lives. On November 11, 1918 Germany formally surrendered, and now that the war was finally over it was time to set some rules to ensure that peace was here to stay. Although everyone was doing what they thought was best for everyone involved in reality it may have all been a terrible idea. Unfortunately, it is possible that there was so much guilt and shame thrown into these “rules” that it lead to World War II.
Could you ever image seeing a flash of light and having an entire building crash right on top of you? That was the reality of the people in Hiroshima when they were hit with a nuclear bomb in World War II. A nuclear bomb is an explosive device that blows up due to nuclear reactions. Hiroshima- a city in Japan had an explosion from the first ever nuclear bomb to be used in war causing lots of damage to the city and people. Before the nuclear bomb Hiroshima was a beautiful little city in Japan where people went to visit, shop, and live.
In late 1942, the US decided it was time for them to take action in the war and do something to stop it. Three years prior the scientific community some how discovered that the German scientists learned how to split an uranium atom. Everyone was soon scared at the possibility of German scientists using that huge amount of energy to produce a bomb capable of massive destruction. Our well known scientists Albert Einstein and Enrico Fermi escaped from nazis. They both agreed that the president of the United States needed to know about the dangers that the Germans could cause.
The US is always in a threat as we have picked up many enemies whether it is North Korea, ISIS, or Russia. In 1942 during World War 2, the US launched the Manhattan Project, which was the project to produce the first US nuclear weapon. We completed the nuclear bombs and destroyed the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. Over 300,000 people died from these bombs essentially ending the war. These numbers demonstrate the amount people that were killed from 2 bombs.
Perhaps the most famous equation ever produced by the renowned theoretical physicist Albert Einstein was his theory of special relativity, written as E=mc2. This sequence of letters and numbers is, for the most part, common knowledge. But how many people actually know what E =mc2 means, or how it has shaped our understanding of the universe? What has he done for the ever-expanding field of science?
World War II began on September 1 of 1939 when Germany assaulted Poland. By 1941, the Germans were ahead in the race for the nuclear bomb. They had a substantial water plant, high- uranium mixes, skilled researchers and engineers, and the best concoction building industry on the planet. Indeed, even before its entrance into the war, the United States had turned out to be exceptionally worried with the atomic danger of the Axis powers.
During WWI (1914-1918), large numbers of women were recruited into jobs vacated by men who had gone to fight in the war. And I one of those women. My name is Georgie Jones I was born March 17, 1897. I have a twin sisters named Roberta Jones who was also in the war with me. When WW1 started I was only 21 and my sister
The terrifying and intense bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during the war in 1945 were life altering, and they had to have begun somewhere. In the early days of October 1941, President Roosevelt gave the okay for the development of the atomic weapon, a decision that would call for a great deal of effort for months to come. The Manhattan Project can be considered one of the most important events during the 20th century, impacting warfare, medicine and the outcome of World War II. The United States had stayed neutral during World War II until being brought into European conflict.
The spread of communist ideals was the main cause of The Cold War; the political and economical differences between the Soviet Union and the United States of America created high tension between such countries. As a capitalist country, United States wanted to promote democracy and free markets, while communist USSR wanted to make sure that the communist ideals spread all over the world. After World War II ended, the Soviets created a sphere of influence in which they established communist governments in several other countries. This angered and worried a lot the United States so they created the Containment policy and formed NATO to try to stop the spread of Communism. In return, the USSR formed the Warsaw Pact to formalize military relations
Due to medical advances, doctors can identify diseases before they become a problem and treat them effectively. “Disease is a biological process, and nuclear medicine provides images of these processes.” Most radiotracers interact with a biological process and emit radiation. Detector systems collect these signals, and computer programs rebuild them into diagnostic images. Nuclear medicine differs from other imaging techniques which visualize structure and shape (anatomy) versus a biological process (physiology)(U.S. Department Converting Energy to Medicine).
World War II was a major historical event that affected many peoples lives. When the War first started it was in the United States best interest not to be a part of it. Everyone remembered the effects of World War I and thought it was better to stay out of it. After a while the United States began to support their allies while they kept their people out of the combat zone. The United States view changed on December 7th, 1941, when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor.
