Milan Yanosov, founder of geospatial data consulting firm and Baoba data expert, used network science techniques to map the relationships among scientists involved in the Manhattan Project.
The project, which culminated in the development of the first atomic bombs during World War II, was a top-secret research enterprise.

Using Wikipedia data as a source, Yanosov created a map of the relationships between scientists, marking them with dots and connecting them with lines based on mentions and links in the encyclopedia. Language processing methods allowed him to analyze texts on the pages of scientists, determine the frequency of mentions and create a network of connections.
“ This approach allowed me to quantify how often each laureate’s page links to others,” Yanosov explained. “That was all I needed to build their network, in which each scientist was a node, connected based on mentions and links on Wikipedia.”

The researcher used open data because some documents about the project are still classified.. In this regard, his work cannot be considered a comprehensive illustration of the Manhattan Project, but it still adds new knowledge about this large-scale undertaking.
The idea that turned the US into a superpower
The map created by Yanosov shows the relationships and connections between Manhattan Project scientists. This visualization helps to better understand the research community and the degree of collaboration between scientists during this period.
Yanosov's project emphasizes the importance of using network methods to analyze complex relationships in the history of science.
