J. Robert Oppenheimer T-Shirt: The Father of the Atomic Bomb
J. Robert Oppenheimer was a theoretical physicist who is best known for his role in the development of the atomic bomb during World War II. He was born in New York City in 1904 and studied physics at Harvard University and the University of Cambridge. In 1942, he was appointed director of the Manhattan Project, the secret U.S. government program to develop the atomic bomb.
Oppenheimer oversaw the development of the bomb at Los Alamos, New Mexico, and it was successfully tested in July 1945. The bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945 were based on the designs developed by Oppenheimer and his team.
Oppenheimer was troubled by the use of the atomic bomb, and he became a vocal advocate for nuclear disarmament. He was also a strong supporter of science education and public understanding of science. He died in 1967.
Oppenheimer's most famous quote is: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." This quote is taken from the Bhagavad Gita, an ancient Hindu text. It is a reflection on the power of the atomic bomb and the responsibility that scientists have to use their knowledge for good.
This t-shirt is a great way to show your appreciation for J. Robert Oppenheimer and his contributions to science and history.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
