Einstein’s letter to Roosevelt - It's generally known that the letter written by Einstein to Roosevelt launched the nuclear arms race; this thesis cannot be maintained on the basis of the documents at the moment available. The information of Einstein on the project development were very poor; his influence on the scientific, military and political complex that managed the research project and the resolution to use the bomb on Hiroshima was very feeble. It must be concluded that the influence of Einstein's letter was almost insignificant. The ethical suffering induced in Einstein by his signature of the letter is the first evidence of the problem of the social responsibility of the scientists.
