OpenAI CEO Sam Altman thinks that the much-hyped Oppenheimer film could have inspired a generation of kids to be physicists, but it didn’t. The reviews of the Christopher Nolan film are taking over the internet. Altman wrote in a tweet that the movie ‘missed the mark’. Agreeing with Altman’s opinion Twitter owner Elon Musk wrote, ‘Indeed’. The Oppenheimer movie explores the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer and the development of the atomic bomb. The movie revolves around the moral ambiguity of the ‘Father of the Atomic Bomb’.

I was hoping that the Oppenheimer movie would inspire a generation of kids to be physicists but it really missed the mark on that. Let’s get that movie made! (I think the social network managed to do this for startup founders.)
