「早知如此,我寧願當鎖匠好了。」-愛因斯坦 (1945)


"If I had known, I would be a locksmith"
- A. Einstein, on hearing that the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.

In 1945, the atomic bomb opened up a new era. Science has granted people a power never existed before. Science brought over 100 thousand deaths in instance in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Science has given the man kind the ability to destroy the world with little efforts.
Prof. Chu will briefly introduce the scientists who contribute to the founding of this era, and their reflections on war and weapons.
