After re-reading your question are you looking for Einstein? He is famous for his Theory of Relativity. He consulted with Roosevelt early on in the quest for a weapon of mass destruction.
Just as a side note, the bomb during it;s development was referred to as "The Gadget"
You are correct on all counts ,Your floor.
I watched a special couple weeks ago it said Rossevelt would not see Einstein so he gave te drawings and plans to another man to give to the president,because Germany had almost completed their bomg ,we only beat them by a couple months,if they had theirs first might have been different outcome .Einstiens Quote ( what have I done )
