“Naturally, we were very jubilant over the outcome of the experiment. While this tremendous ball of flame was there before us, and we watched it, and it rolled along, it became in time diffused with the clouds. . . . Then it was washed out with the wind. We turned to one another and offered congratulations, for the first few minutes. Then, there was a chill, which was not the morning cold; it was a chill that came to one when one thought, as for instance when I thought of my wooden house in Cambridge, and my laboratory in New York, and of the millions of people living around there, and this power of nature which we had first understood it to be-well, there it was.”

–Isidor Rabi, one of the physicists of the Manhattan Project, after the explosion of the first atomic bomb at the Trinity Test Site in New Mexico, July 1945, cited in Richard Rhodes’s The Making of the Atomic Bomb.
