Final Jeopardy Explanation – Wednesday, September 20 2023

On December 16, 2022, the U.S. Department of Energy reversed a 1954 ruling concerning J. Robert Oppenheimer, admitting the original process was flawed. Oppenheimer had played a pivotal role in the Manhattan Project, which led to the creation of the first atomic bombs during World War II.

In 1954, amidst the Cold War tension, Oppenheimer’s security clearance was stripped after hearings scrutinized his loyalty to the U.S. These hearings probed into Oppenheimer’s previous political associations with left-wing groups, as well as his reservations about developing the hydrogen bomb.

The Cold War environment, filled with anti-communist fervor, heavily influenced the 1954 decision. As a result, Oppenheimer lost his ability to shape U.S. nuclear policy, and his reputation suffered a significant blow.
