Before I got into physics, I thought that ##e=mc^2## was the atomic bomb equation. I now know that the equation itself has nothing to do with the atomic bomb. So, I'm wondering, how did ##e=mc^2## contribute to the development of nuclear/atomic weaponry/power?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Edit: I do not know if this is in the right forum.
