Hunner’s Free First Friday talk, "Broken by Secrets: Robert Oppenheimer and the Early Atomic Age," will focus on Oppenheimer’s leadership of the Manhattan Project, his advocacy for an alternative way of dealing with these new weapons during the Cold War, and the events that led to him losing his security clearance in 1954.
