The physicists and the Bomb


For this forum debate, put yourself in the mindset of a junior physicist working on bomb calculations at Los Alamos in December 1944. You have just heard, through a friend who works with General Groves, that it is known with great certainty that the German bomb project was a dud. Would you have stayed on at the lab? Draw upon the lectures and the readings, and be specific about the considerations that you would need to take into account in making your decision. Avoid anachronisms.
