From the global pandemic to Australian wildfires to a 21st century civil rights movement, 2020 has been a transformative year that will surely be remembered for generations. July 16, 2020 will also mark the 75th anniversary of the world’s first nuclear explosion at the “Trinity site” as part of the Manhattan Project.
