the article links to several dab pages
alt text needed on some images (not a GA requirement) per
all other toolbox checks are green. (no action required)

Hugh Stott Taylor , needs to lose the space before the comma
He became an associate professor twice, might be worth clarifying the second time was at Harvard
tapped - suggest a little informal, perhaps "selected" or "recruited"
Spring → spring
"The challenge was to produce an industrial process that could produce it on a large scale", suggest substituting the first "produce" with "develop"

suggest you explain a little more about the Chapman–Jouguet model, perhaps "the Chapman–Jouguet model of detonation velocity"?
The first para of the Manhatten Project subsection starts in 1944 then goes back to 1943. Suggest you put it in chronological order to show how he became involved
"Kistiakowsky watched the as the" not sure if a word is missing or extra
He sent Kistiakowsky, in early November 1960, to the SAC Headquarters in Omaha to evaluate the SAC war plans → In early November 1960, he sent Kistiakowsky to the SAC Headquarters in Omaha to evaluate the SAC war plans
The orders gave SAC officers the choice to cooperate with Kistiakowsky, do you mean they had no choice? Unclear.
fn's 13 & 23, pp→p
his name is unnecessarily bolded in the Refs (Dainton)
physics should probably have an initial capital in the infobox
The file File:George Kistiakowsky ID badge.png just needs its PD licence tweaked over at Commons to fix a syntax error
there are three overlinks, Physical chemistry, Manhattan Project and American Chemical Society
That's it, placing on hold for seven days for the above to be addressed.
