Comment Missing the point? (Score 1) 332

Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like a lot of the commenters here are missing the point. The interesting part of this guy's feat isn't that he reverse-engineered (if that's even the right term) any two atomic bombs, but Fat Man and Little Boy. Apparently, he's the first person to get all of the details of these bombs' inner workings. The difficulty in this isn't the enriched uranium thing (which is what's traditionally the difficult part in building nuclear weapons), the difficulty was in getting all the inner details just right...

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
