"I Am Become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds" December 28, 2017
J. Robert Oppenheimer was the wartime head of the Los Alamos laboratory in New Mexico. It was there, on July 16, 1945, that he and his fellow scientists conducted the Trinity Test - the first detonation of a nuclear bomb. But to Ray Monk, Oppenheimer was also a secular Jew, a student of the Bhagavad Gita, and at times, a puzzlement.  

Ray Monk is a British philosopher and the author of Robert Oppenheimer: A Life Inside the Center
