RE: Conspiracy Theories.
You make an interesting point here and I thank you for it! But I'm not sure that nobody knew that this was happening. Tests were done prior to the detonation of the bomb at Hiroshima and I doubt that those went entirely unoticed by people who were not conspirators. I admit that I am not an expert on the history of the atomic bomb. But I suspect that this was an arms race situation and the technology was perfected in the U.S.A. first. The fact that some other contry did not develope the technology first, does not prove that they were not aware that it was being developed. Portions of that technology may have been leaked while others were not. Still, it's a very good point!
