Did You Know?

"Just at that instant there rose as if from the bowels of the earth a light not of this world, the light of many suns in one. It was sunrise such as the world had never seen, a great green super-sun climbing in a fraction of a second to a height of more than eight thousand feet, rising ever higher until it touched the clouds... Then out of the great silence came a mighty thunder... The first cry of a new born world."

William Laurence of the New York Times viewed the test from 20 miles away. He wrote this description of the explosion that was the equivalent of 20 000 tons of TNT... This quote submitted to us by Nick Larson of Ontario, Canada.
Welcome to The Atomic Heritage Foundation

Welcome to the Atomic Heritage Foundation!  The Atomic Heritage Foundation (AHF) is a non-profit organization in Washington, DC dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the Manhattan Project and the Atomic Age. 

{mosimage}In 2006, the Atomic Heritage Foundation took on the mission of the Manhattan Project Heritage Preservation Association (MPHPA), formerly the Children of the Manhattan Project.  To continue the work begun by the MPHPA, we have redesigned and streamlined this website.  It remains the largest repository for primary source material about the Manhattan Project on the web, as well as the largest database of Manhattan Project veterans.  To find material from the previous MPHPA site, please explore the new site through the menu on the left.  The entire MPHPA site is still available by clicking on the "Classic" link. 

For the latest news about our work, please visit the News section.  

For more details on all of our current projects and past accomplishments, visit the Projects page.

If you have any questions or concerns about the new site, please contact

Atomic Story of the Week

The Atomic Heritage Foundation has received a $350,000 grant primarily to prepare exhibits for Hanford's historic B Reactor, which supporters are working to save for a museum. The foundation hopes to have the exhibits finished in time for the 65th anniversary in 2008 of the Manhattan Project at the Hanford nuclear reservation.
