Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967) did groundbreaking research on nuclear physics, quantum mechanics and stellar spectroscopy. Oppenheimer was the Director of the Manhattan Project, which developed the atomic bomb, at Los Alamos, New Mexico, from 1942-1945. From 1947-1966, he was the Director of the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey. Oppenheimer lost his security clearance in 1954, a result of both his many left-wing associations and - probably - his opposition to the hydrogen bomb and to the nuclear arms race. A decade later, and shortly before his death, President Johnson conferred on him the Enrico Fermi Award, signaling his political rehabilitation. Two items.
