Dear Ben:

Thanks for letting me see the script and trailer for "Bomb Squad." You've done an extraordinary job of extracting the essential story, which is inherently dramatic and compelling, from the matrix of science and technology in which it was embedded, and bringing it to life as an animated musical.

I think I know the story of the development of the atomic bomb better than almost anyone who wasn't a participant himself, since I wrote what seems to be considered the definitive history, my book "The Making of the Atomic Bomb." I never would have thought it could be done as an animated musical and still remain authentic. You do it and wonderfully well.

Congratulations. I can't wait to see the completed work. It should find a wide audience. I hope it does.

Best,
Richard Rhodes
