Who made the first bomb?
If you are talking about the first ATOMIC bomb, the the answer is complicated. The first bomb was built in the USA during WWII. At some point in the 1930's it was discovered that nuclear fusion could be used to create huge amounts of energy. Due to the growing possibility that Nazi Germany had access to materials needed for nuclear fusion, the USA government began the Manhattan Project. At that time Britain was under strong air raids so it was impossible to made reactor there so scientist of british went America for taking part in this mission. They also enlisted the help of physicist Robert Oppenheimer, and Albert Einstein to design the bomb. If you're talking aerial bombs, 1911 during the Italian-Arab Wars. If you're talking grenade-like bombs, the Chinese. the first to use the bomb was the Germans which made the Great Britain during the war in line with this, it can be argued the Germans were the first bomb-maker since they were the first to use it especially the rocket.

First Bombs \n\nThere are records of the Mongols using bombs against the Japanese as early as 1281 AD. The Chinese are commonly credited with the invention of the first for…m of gunpowder, Black Powder, but there is no definitive date or creditation for that.
the explosive used was certainly black powder, casing materials are uncertain though.
The first atomic bomb was made to test the theory that a "super weapon" could be built using the principles of nuclear physics. Ideas of the nature of the physics of the atom …developed as the 20th century rolled on, and continued to do so as World War 2 began and raged across the globe. It was felt that the bomb, which could deliver a massive and almost unimmaginably distructive blast, was possible. And if it was possible, the U.S. had better be the first to have it lest the Axis win the war by developing and deploying it. America, with the help of the British and other European scientists, put together the Manhattan Project to do just that. The rest is history.. Make no mistake about it - the application of the fission reaction to build a weapon (a bomb) was a necessary first step in the development of atomic energy. The world situation, that is, the fact that much of the world was at war, was an undeniable catalyst in the choice to apply nuclear ideas to a weapon, and to design and develop the atomic bomb.
Answer . The first nuclear bomb was made during 1941~1945, by the USA's Manhattan Project, the top-secret project for developing nuclear weapons. The first nuclear explosio…n ever took place somewhere in New Mexico in the Nevada Desert at July 16, 1945, the famous "Trinity" Test.. it was developed in 1945. (so 63). I think the first nuclear bomb was used to blow up Hiroshima on the 6th June, 1945, right at the end of WW2. It was dropped by the Enola Gay and was called "Little boy".
The US, in cooperation with Canada and Great Britain, developed the first atomic bomb.
The first hydrogen bomb was designed by American Richard "Dick" Garwin. Whilst Garwin made the first design, Edward Teller and a team of scientists made the first actual bomb.… In interviews, Teller was quite adamant that the credit go to Garwin for his design, but he accepted the credit for the construction of the bomb itself. Other scientists who worked out the details of the design were Dr. Marshall Rosenbluth and Dr. Conrad Longmire. The role of various physicists and scientists in the development of the Hydrogen bomb has been fulled by controversy and criticism through the years. For more details on Teller's view of the process and the people involved, see the link below. Thank You.
The first nuclear weapon was constructed by the US in the first half of 1945. This weapon, which was set atop a tower (static test) and code-name Trinity, was detonated on Jul…y 16, 1945. The second and third weapons were built later in the year, and these were the pair that was dropped on Japan.
Both the first fission bomb (the Gadget device exploded in Trinitytest July 16, 1945 on a 100 foot tall steel tower in the Jornadadel Muerto valley in what is now White Sands …Missile Range) and thefirst fusion bomb (the Sausage device exploded in Ivy Mike testNovember 1, 1952 on the surface at Enewetak Atoll) were designedand made at Los Alamos in New Mexico.
the first atomic bomb was made by Albert Einstein by splitting the first atom. Some problems with this one. Firstly, the question says first bomb, not first atomic bomb. Seco…ndly, Einstein never made, or designed, or worked on, a bomb of any kind. Thirdly he was not the first to split an atom - in fact he never split one in his life. Fourthly he never did any work at all on nuclear fission.
Although the Germans during World War II were the first to come up with both the concept it never came to light. America was the first nation to make a nuclear weapon.
The United States, with its activities through the Manhattan Project in WW2, produced the first nuclear weapons. There were thousands of people on this project, from my grandf…ather working as a general construction worker at Hanford and totally baffled at the tons of perfectly good equipment the army kept dumping in trenches and burying (he was still baffled when I was a kid in the 1960s and it had long been publicly announced that Hanford had made the plutonium for the Nagasaki bomb), to J. R. Oppenheimer and Leslie R. Groves that managed the project. By the end of Operation Crossroads in the summer of 1946 at Bikini Atoll in the Pacific, we had built a grand total of 9 devices, detonated 5 of them, leaving only 4 in "stockpile".
The USA created the first atomic bomb in New Mexico in the closing stages of World War Two. They used it to defeat Japan.
16th July 1945 was the first atomic explosion, at the White Sands Testing Facility near Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA.
