Atomic Ed unveils the journey of Ed Grothus, from working in Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico to becoming an outspoken antinuclear activist. Archival documents, past and recent photographs and a selection of letters from over 50 years of correspondence between Ed Grothus and politicians, scientists, the media and his family take us back and forth through the nuclear history of the USA.

 

Founded by the U.S. government during World War II, Los Alamos was selected as one of the enclaves to carry out the secret 'Manhattan' project because of its remote location. It was there that scientists developed the atomic weaponry used in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

 

Ed Grothus began working as a technician and engineer at Los Alamos in 1949, but during the Vietnam War he decided he could no longer support the development of nuclear weapons and left the laboratory to become one of the most dynamic anti-nuclear activists of the 20th century.

 

Archival documents, old and recent photographs, and a selection of letters from more than 50 years of correspondence between Ed Grothus and politicians, scientists, the media, and his family uncover relevant facts from U.S. nuclear history.
