Teller is still ALIVE?! Wow!!
I am still convinced to this day that Germany's "Ultimate Solution" policy was what ironicly kept them from getting the bomb. The vast majority of scientists at the Manhattan Project were Jews (including Fermi), a bunch of whom were trying to get the hell AWAY from the Axis. If I remember correctly, the Germans got so desperate, they had to make the remaining Jewish Physicists in Germany "Honorary Aryans.", to keep them working on their projects. (I could be wrong, but I thought thats what happened...)
It's a good thing we won when we did too. Wasn't Werner Von Braun only a couple weeks away from perfecting a rocket that could hit Manhattan, when Germany surrendered?
