Leslie Richard Groves (17th August 1896 in Albany, New York - 13th July 1970 (age 73) in Washington) was an American military officer responsible for the Manhattan Project.
In September 1942, he was appointed brigadier-general on a temporary basis and military director of the top secret atomic bomb development project, which he chose the name “Manhattan Project”, although he would have preferred to go on site. It confirms Robert Oppenheimer's choice of the New Mexico site.

After the Second World War, physicist Isidor Isaac Rabi commented on the appointment of Robert Oppenheimer as head of the Los Alamos National Laboratory: "... was a real stroke of genius on the part of General Groves, who was generally not considered a genius". He obtained the rank of major-general on a temporary basis in 1944, then lieutenant-general in 1948 just before his retirement.

In Roland Joffé's film, ‘The Masters of the Shadow’, which tells the story of the Manhattan Project, his role is played by Paul Newman.

Julius Robert Oppenheimer (22nd April 1904 in New York - 18th February 1967 in Princeton, New Jersey, USA) is an American physicist who distinguished himself in theoretical physics and then as scientific director of the Manhattan Project. Because of his prominent role, he was regularly dubbed the "father of the atomic bomb."

The Los Alamos National Laboratory develops the first three atomic bombs in history. Although he believes that the United States should have sent more warnings to Japan before bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he remains a supporter of the use of atomic bombs. After World War II, he was appointed Chairman of the General Advisory Committee, which advised the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission...
