“Gentleman, what we have here is the most powerful force ever created by mankind. Lets poke at it with a screwdriver.” —Louis Slotin, Los Alamos laboratory

If this story is even half true then you have brilliant men touched with a bit of madness, mixed with insanity, bravado and bravery beyond description.

But I guess it takes a bit of madness to develop the most powerful weapon known to man.

I'd like to know what a psychological assessment of these men would show.  How much crazy vs brilliant were they?  Apparently the designer of the AK-47 had many demons to deal with although he was praised by the state.  Did these guys suffer emotional demons after creating the bomb?
