U.S. had an enormous headstart regarding atomic energy.

slightly OT but related: When I was a kid I loooved LEGOs. Building things with all those blocks was fun. Today, LEGO has fully functional and programmable robotics kit - LEGO Mindstorms! Couple of more years and my kids will be big enough so that I can play with this..... errr, I mean they can play with it :)

I keep trying to convince my wife I need a lego mindstorm kit, and she keeps balking.

Oddly, she has no problem with my rocketry addiction. Go figure.
