"That's the story": an interview with Roy Glauber

Speaker: José LATORRE

Abstract

We will show a documentary featuring an interview with Roy Glauber. Nobel laureate Prof. Roy J. Glauber is the last living scientist from the Theory Division of the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos. His clear, fluent and articulate narration brings first hand information on the life at Los Alamos, the main scientific characters there, the Trinity test of the first ever nuclear weapon, the bombing of Japan and the political aftermath of the project. Glauber's account is documented with audiovisual material recently declassified from the Los Alamos Archive. The producer of this documentary, Jose Ignacio Latorre from the University of Barcelona, supported by a panel of scholars from the University of Edinburgh, will participate in the debate with the public.
