Striving For A Safer World Since 1945

In November 1945, the Federation of Atomic Scientists was founded by Manhattan Project scientists who helped construct the first atomic bombs.

These scientists were united by the credo that all scientists, engineers, and other technically-trained thinkers have an ethical obligation to ensure the technological fruits of their intellect and labor are applied to the benefit of humankind.

Today, the Federation of American Scientists continues to strengthen its network of experts and thinkers to uphold its mission established in 1945: strive to make the world a safer, more informed place.
