On this day in 1941

Feb. 23, 1941: One Step Closer

Quote:
1941: Glenn Seaborg, leading two other researchers at the University of California at Berkeley, produces and isolates plutonium for the first time.

The team's success in producing an element with an atomic number higher than that of uranium (92) meant that the production of a nuclear weapon was not only possible, but inevitable.
