Robert Oppenheimer and the Transformation of Science in World Affairs

 

 

The Oppenheimer movie has attracted global attention and the highest film awards. It tells a gripping story of unprecedented global events that changed the course of history, unleashing a veritable Pandora’s box that continues to haunt humanity eight decades later.

 

In this opinion piece, Garry Jacobs, President of The World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS), and Jonathan Granoff, President of the Global Security Institute, argue for an improved approach to international security. 

 

It is noteworthy that WAAS originated with the vision of Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell, and its founding members also included Robert Oppenheimer and Nobel Peace Laureate Dr. Joseph Rotblat, a founding member of GSI's Board of Advisors and the only scientist who walked off the Manhattan Project presciently warning of the dangers of the bomb.
