Most historical analysis, with hindsight, suggests that the Nazi nuclear research programme never got very close to developing an atomic weapon.

Uh huh. And Iran wants nuclear energy to power goat warmers. Just keep telling yourself that evil psychotics don't want to incinerate you, and everything will be fine.

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

Apparently both came from ores extracted at the "Joachimsthal" mine in what is now the Czech Republic

Jáchymov in Czech. The mine was named after the spa near it. A beautiful area. Not from from Carlsbad. Communists turned the town into a slave labor camp to operate the mine. It was really a death camp. Average age of death was around 45.

If we had done otherwise, and if many thousand people had been put to work on it and then if nothing had been developed, this could have had extremely disagreeable consequences for us."

The key reason for free people triumphing over totalitarian regimes: The possibility of failure and living to try again.
