"Concepts of religion may now be goals of science and engineering."
This story is most often quoted as being the first reference to the idea of atomic energy and an atomic bomb. The first explicit use of the phrase "atomic bomb" was in the 1914 novel The World Set Free by H.G. Wells; see the article for atomic bomb.
