Today Alex Wellerstein, an historian of nuclear weaponry, breaks down the science behind Christopher Nolan’s 2023 film “Oppenheimer.” Which historical moments were drawn from as inspiration for what became the film-and how accurate are the depictions? Hear directly from an atomic expert how the science of "Oppenheimer" was translated onto the screen.

The person he's talking about at 6:13 who looked on purpose was, in fact, Richard Feynman who is the one in the movie who says that the cars windshield will block the UV rays. This actually happened and according to Feynman's autobiography, he immediately regretted, quickly dropping to the floor of the car and dazed by an afterimage immensely visible even with his eyes closed.

The quirky thing ive noticed while watching the movie is that (spoiler alert) the detonation was delayed because of the rain, u see cillian and matt's character are talking about how loud the explosion will be while on the control shed. Cillian line was "we will hear it at exactly one hour and 58 mins". In the run time of the movie, the explosion was heard at the 1 hour 58 minute of the film.
@hylianchriss
@hylianchriss 6 aylar önce
You are wrong. They were talking about atmospheric ignition. Matt Damon wonders about the scientists joking about the bomb accidentally destroying the entire world. To which Openheimer says the chances are "near zero", but they can't be 100% sure with "theory alone". So he says, "[either way], we'll know in exactly 1 hour and 58 minutes". Pretty sure no one in the entire movie even mentions how loud the explosion will be. And I'd bet your time stamp is also wrong. Although close. Most versions I've seen has the Trinity test explosion around the 1 hour 52 minute mark. I guess the only variation would be the opening studio logos that could slide that time stamp around a bit.

5:28. Those are not the X-Unit. That shows one of the 32 twin exploding bridgewire detonators. The X-Unit was a large assembly of high voltage capacitors to fire the exploding bridgewire detonators, along with the cascade of discharge tubes to fire the capacitors and the associated charging equipment to charge the capacitors. The X-Unit is to the far right, not completely in shot.

The ending of Oppenheimer was great. When they finally showed what He n Einstein were talking about, how they were worried before they tested the atom bomb that if the reaction didn't stop and it burned the atmosphere destroying the world, and then Oppenheimer said I'm afraid we did destroy the world referencing the fact that creating the bombs in the first place gave man the means to destroy themselves and the world!!!

The US was manufacturing components for 1.6 nuclear weapons per month in July 1945. The plan was for five to be dropped on Japan for “demonstration” purposes and another twelve in November 1945 during the actual invasion. With the end of hostilities in September 1945 only nine more were built by the end of 1945 (based on an audit in 1946). The fourth bomb casing was on Tinian on the 15th of August when Japan surrendered with its “pit” in San Francisco on route to Tinian for use on August 19th.

Good comment. Nolan is in love with non-linearity. He uses too much of it in all his movies. I didn't find the jumping around in time and perspective hard to follow, but rather jarring and momentum-draining. If you have a compelling story to tell, which this most definitely is, then for the love of science, just freakin' tell it! I would be very interested in seeing this movie edited in a chronologically-linear fashion. My guess is it would have been even better...

I always heard it was X-rays going down the tower cables that caused that effect.

I believe that's correct. The way this video is cut makes it confusing, he starts the sentence talking about the rope trick and then ends it talking about the shockwave interacting with the ground, but it's two separate things haphazardly mashed together.

I always wondered what would happen if a meteor strikes directly into a dense natural uranium deposit. And whether or not that would be enough to trigger a reaction.

In Africa ... there were natural reactors... a long time ago.

if you mean a nuclear explosion not really. the material would be vaporized before it went supercritical.

Natural uranium today doesn’t have enough of the explody uranium to go boom if hit by a meteor. Earlier in earth’s history there was more of the explody stuff and we know of places where there were natural nuclear reactors, though it’s unclear if they ever exploded.

Concentration of U235 in uranium ore these days is not high enough for chain reaction, that's why you need to enrich it. Way back billions of years ago when the concentration of U235 was higher you could have natural reactors if the conditions are right like that one in Gabon. If a meteor was to strike such place it wouldn't explode, an implosion type bomb need to be detonated just right to compress the fissile material a meteor can't do that.

No. Natural uranium is 99.3% U238 and 0.7% U235. U235 is the fissile portion that causes the chain reaction. While a U238 tamper can be made to absorb neutrons and react during an atomic explosion it does not contribute additional neutrons to the chain reaction.

Excellent guest for this format! Dr. Alex Wellerstein has an engaging demeanor and knows and presents the topic extremely well. Be sure to check his bio which is impressive. Thanks for posting.

2:10 - pics show both tamper plug insertion in the movie and in real life. Why did the movie switch to showing men doing it by hand and not like it was really done with a chain hoist? In any case, the tamper plug weighed 105 pounds and would be impossible to insert by hand as shown in the movie.

I mean, it’s a movie. The doing it by hand is probably more interesting and tense to watch.

I agree it wouldn’t matter much if they were just changing how stuff was moved around - but they’re also changing the physical properties of the materials used, changing the weight of uranium and explosives to a fraction of what they are. They could still have had two men realistically lower the hundred pound plug by having them stand directly above and using all four arms.
