Julius Robert Oppenheimer, a nuclear physicist born in New York, led the Los Alamos Laboratory that developed the actual bomb. The first artificial nuclear explosion took place near Alamogordo New Mexico on July 16, 1945.

In 1954, in the year of Romany Josephine Kelly's passing, on May 17th, the Supreme Court released a decision on Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka.
