Although Oppenheimer was very excited about his new discovery in the atomic nuclear field and also the intensity of the competition arising between finding how to create an atomic weapon between the United States and Germany, Oppenheimer was very troubled that he did not even think of the thousand and millions of people that were left to suffer the aftermath of what had been left from the exploding of the bombs. Soon after the war he began to voice his opposition in making stronger bombs using hydrogen. These hydrogen bombs that he had created and he had an examine with the United states Atomic Energy Commission his loyalty and was questioned if he ties to the Communist Party in the 1930's. Oppenheimer was revoked the security clearance in 1954. After his success with the bombs Oppenheimer worked as the director of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. the Atomic Energy Commission had awarded him the role in the development of atomic research and was awarded the prestigious Enrico Fermi Award.
Oppenheimer was the director of the Manhattan Project. Oppenheimer's struggle after the war with the morality of building such massively destructive weapon epitomized the moral dilemma that faced scientists who worked to create the atomic and hydrogen bombs. As a graduate from Harvard in 1925 with a degree in chemistry Oppenheimer continued to study and graduate from the University of Gottingen in Germany with a PhD. After earning his doctorate degree, he traveled back to the United States and started to teach physics at the University of California Berkeley. "He became well known for being both a fantastic teacher and a research physicist," these two components are often not seen as a combination. Oppenheimer was soon appointed to be the director of the whole Manhattan project. With Oppenheimer being apart of this project wouldn't only prove himself of being a brilliant scientist, but it would show everyone of what an exceptional administrator he was. He got all of the best scientist in the entire country of the United States together in Los Alamos, New Mexico in the research facility. The research team took three years to finally figure out how they could produce such an atomic blast that they did and then dropped the two atomic bombs upon the two cities in Japan.
