The Manhattan Project, or more formally, the Manhattan Engineering District (MED), was the effort during World War II to develop the first nuclear weapons of the United States with assistance from the United Kingdom and Canada. Its research was directed by American physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, under the overall project supervision of General Leslie R. Groves and the auspices of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The project's origins were in fears during the 1930s that Nazi Germany was also investigating such weapons of its own.AnswerBecause he knew if the Allies didnt make the A-Bomb the Germans would
look what it did at www.rotten.com/library/history/atom-bomb/ see it all
"This new phenomenon would also lead to the construction of bombs,
Franklin D Roosevelt was the pres. of the u.s. and he helped create NATO alliances.
No he did not create the atomic bomb nor was he involved with the Manhattan Project. He did play a role though by sending a letter to convince president Roosevelt to start work on a nuclear weapon, and many of his theories went into the making of it. Einstein himself was a pacifist and regretted for the rest of his life that he had influenced the creation of nuclear weapons.

The Manhattan Engineering District, eventually renamed just Manhattan Project.
This was called the Manhattan Project.
Theodore Roosevelt did NOT create the New Deal. You are confusing two different US Presidents; Theodore Roosevelt with Franklin D. Roosevelt of the 1930's and 1940's. Franklin Roosevelt created the New Deal. Theodore Roosevelt created the "Square Deal".
The goal of the Manhattan Project was to create nuclear fission reactions. This was done to determine the mass of any radioactive material in the creation of an atomic bomb.
The atomic bomb.
Yes he did.
No he did not make a soup kitchen!
The New Deal was Franklin D Roosevelt.
The Manhattan Project. This wasn't really a secret code word, it comes from an Army practice of naming a project after its headquarters, which at the time the project started were in Manhattan in New York City.
Yes, they were to get the country out of the Great Depression.
No, the Americans created nuclear weapons under the "Manhattan Project"
As warned by Albert Einstein in a letter to President Roosevelt, America needed to pump up its efforts to develop nuclear technology against the tough competition provided by Germany. Einstein had warned Roosevelt of nuclear energy's potential to create a powerful new bomb, and that potential was promptly harnessed, creating 2 atomic bombs and wiping out both Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Therefore, I suppose you could say that the Manhattan project began for the purpose of ending WWII.
