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 form of gunpowder, Black Powder, but there is no definitive date or creditation for that.
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 explosion ever took place somewhere in New Mexico in the Nevada Desert at July 16, 1945, the famous "Trinity" Test.. it was develope…d 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". ( Full Answer )
The [Manhattan] project succeeded in developing and detonating three nuclear weapons in 1945: a test detonation of a plutonium implosion bomb on July 16 (the Trinity test ) near Alamogordo, New Mexico ; an enriched uranium bomb code-named " Little Boy " on August 6 over Hiroshima , Jap…an ; and a second plutonium bomb, code-named " Fat Man " on August 9 over Nagasaki , Japan..

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 cons…truction 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. ( Full Answer )
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 July 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 Enewe…tak Atoll) were designedand made at Los Alamos in New Mexico.

The atomic bomb was created in Los Alamos, New Mexico. many peoplemay think that it was made in New York because the project behindthe building of the atomic bomb was called the Manhattan Project.it is called this because it is named after the location ofColumbia University that held much of the ear…ly research for thenuclear program. Today there is a museum of the atomic bomb in LosAlamos, New Mexico where you can visit and learn more about theatomic bomb. ( Full Answer )
Hiroshima, Japan was the first city in history to suffer a nuclear attack on August 6, 1945. Nagasaki was attacked with a nuclear weapon three days later. These are the only two nuclear weapons used in anger.
An atomic bomb of the 'Little Boy' type, which was detonated overHiroshima. The decision by the United States to use this bombagainst Japan in August 1945 is credited with ending World War II.It was $2 billion the approximate cost of research and developmentof the atomic bomb by the United States, c…alled the "ManhattanProject."

It was designed and the kits of parts were crated at Los Alamos,NM. The Trinity test device was assembled at the Trinity site. The two bombs dropped on Japan were assembled on the island ofTinian.
Harry S. Truman was president when the first nuclear bomb was created by the scientists, chemists, and physicists of the Manhattan Project during WWII.
That would certainly be the most common construction, but with the development of super-plastics it would be surprising if some are not made of it. Actually the first bombs were probably made of vegetables - a gourd filled with gunpowder.

The neutron bomb is generally credited to Samuel Cohen of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory , who developed the concept in 1958. Although initially opposed by President John F. Kennedy , its testing was authorized and carried out in 1963 at an underground Nevada test facility.Developmen…t was subsequently postponed by President Jimmy Carter in 1978 following protests against his administration's plans to deploy neutron warheads in Europe. President Ronald Reagan restarted production in 1981. ( Full Answer )
it is made by using a various explosive chemicals. and they are all highly flammable substances which could react very quickly. they could kill billions of people in just a matter of time..
Bombs are made with the ingredients that are found easily on the Internet. Making the bomb, however, is a different question. A liquid explosive that is most well-known is nitroglycerin. If it freezes, it detonates. If it falls, just two or three feet, it will detonate, which makes it highly impract…ical for terrorists, as some experts say. Middle East terrorists use triacetone triperoxide, or TATP. Usually found as a crystalline powder, it could be melted into liquid to be carried aboard a plane. If anyone thinks the complicate swords are gibberish, I'm just telling you, that's how the chemical is spelled, and chemicals usually have very complicated names. ( Full Answer )
It was made to stop war the war with Japan because they would't surrender for the United States.
The first nuclear bombs were fission devices. The fissile materials used are Uranium 235 and Plutonium 239. Later bombs were thermonuclear or fusion weapons. The material used in some early experimental devices was tritium ( kept liquid at very low temperature). Modern thermonuclear devices use lit…hium 6 deuteride. Fusion weapons contain a small fission bomb to set them off. See the Related question for more information. ( Full Answer )

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. Secondly, 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. ( Full Answer )
Wedges of the metal Plutonium were assembled into a ball shape, and surrounded by explosives. When the explosives detonated, they crushed the ball into a smaller, denser ball, triggering a nuclear fission reaction. This changes Plutonium into other materials, and releases huge amounts of energy very… quickly. However, the first atomic bomb used in war was a different design. A "bullet" of Uranium 235 metal was fired down a gun barrel into a larger mass of Uranium 235. When the two pieces of Uranium were rapidly brought together, the nuclear fission reaction began.

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.
If they won the race chaos would break. Depending on where you live you might of been dead now.
They were made during the years of 1914 and stopped using them on 1918. That is now go away.
It was first used as Germany launched its new weapon from Pas-de-Calais on the northern coast of France, on 12th June, 1944.
It was first dropped on people in Hiroshima, Japan, August 6th, 1945, then Nagasaki, Japan, August 9th, 1945, both by the US. However, the first test was in New Mexico (again by the US), but there the people were told that it was going to happen.
The Manhattan Project was the codename for a project conducted during World War II to develop the first atomic bomb. A nuclear weapon is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission or a combination of fission and fusion. Project research took place a…t over thirty sites across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The three primary research and production sites of the project were the plutonium-production facility at what is now the Hanford Site, the uranium-enrichment facilities at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and the weapons research and design laboratory now known as Los Alamos National Laboratory.

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 grandfather working as a general construction worker at Hanford and totally baffled at the tons of perfectly good equipment the arm…y 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". ( Full Answer )
The first Nuclear weapon was created by a team of American Scientist's, known as the Manhattan project. It was first tested and used in 1945, not long before we used them on Japan.
You must be thinking of Oppenheimer. He did not personally make the bomb by himself. Thousands of workers were needed to create and build the three atomic bombs during World War 2. They were developed in the Manhattan Project in several places around the US but the primary place was in New Mexico.
The USA created the first atomic bomb in New Mexico in the closing stages of World War Two. They used it to defeat Japan.
The US didn't make the first atomic bomb by themselves...They had the help of the Canadian and the British in building it. This project was called "Operation Manhattan" or the "Manhattan Project."
It was made to bring ww2 to and end. Anyways, 2 of them were needed.
Governments go for the well know material for bomb making but the classic militia starter bomb is always fertilizer based. It's easy to obtain because fertilizer is made from pig, sheep, and cow manure.
No one person made any nuclear bomb. Different components were/are made by different people, then a team of a dozen or more do final assembly.
16th July 1945 was the first atomic explosion, at the White Sands Testing Facility near Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA.
No. It was assembles and mostly produced in Alamogordo, New Mexico. There were other places where people worked to make parts of the bomb's elements and processed the uranium and plutonium for the bombs.
Yes, the bomb was dropped on 6 august 1945 while the Nagasaki bomb was dropped the 9th.
Nowhere. The first atomic bomb was made in Los Alamos, New Mexico. However uranium was enriched in several large plants at Oak Ridge,Tennessee. This site was selected by the Manhattan Project due tothe available of low cost electricity from the Tennessee ValleyAuthority, which was needed to operate …the thousands of pumps inthe Gaseous Diffusion enrichment process. This uranium was used in the Little Boy bomb (the second atomicbomb detonated, the first atomic bomb used in combat) and at lowenrichment levels in the Hanford plutonium production reactor'sfuel.

The first atomic bomb was made August 1945. My ? to you is," Why did they even start making those atomic bomb anyway?
Basically, nuclear weapons are made from uranium or plutonium material and hydrogen as a chain reaction nucleus.
Not a bomb in the usual sense- lava bombs are globs of lava formed inside of a volcano- blown out by the force of an eruption.
The United States, with assistance from the United Kingdom and Canada, designed and built the bombs under the codename Manhattan Project naming Robert Opperheimmer head of the team. You could see the basic diagrams of the bomb but the specific specifications remain classified.
The US made the first Nuclear Bomb which was an Atomic Bomb. It wasused on August 1945 to simply force Japan onto it's knees andsurrender to the US.
He is a Pakistani nuclear scientist and a metallurgical engineer, colloquially regarded as the founder of HEU based Gas-centrifuge uranium enrichment program for Pakistan's integrated atomic bomb project and the media never tires of glorifying AQ Khan as an eminent nuclear supremo. AQ Khan built the… facade of his invincibility by condemning all the superb accomplishments of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission achieved over 20 years of dedication. First, you know that AQ Khan's was just a copper metallurgist employed in Holland by Urenco and assigned to a less sensitive section, which was not directly involved in development of centrifuges but the United States warned that Khan still remains a "serious proliferation risk". In December 1974, Abdul Qadeer Khan went to Pakistan and taxied to Prime Minister Secretariat where the session was held at midnight and remained under extreme secrecy with only few knowing about it.There, Qadeer Khan met with Zulfikar Bhutto, Munir Khan, and Dr. MÃ¼baschir Hassan, government Science Adviser. At this session, he enlightened the importance of uranium as oppose to plutonium, but Bhutto remain unconvinced to adopt uranium against the plutonium for the development of an atomic bomb. Abdul Qadeer Khan pioneered his research in the thermal quantum field and the condensed physics but the nuclear is far away from the making of. ( Full Answer )
