Fact check: "Only in his late twenties, he was the youngest group leader at the site.". Feynman was 24 or 25, and he was also a group leader under Bethe. If you wish to say that Wilson occupied a much higher post than Feynman (which I think he did; I don't exactly remember), you should fix up the above statement as it may give a false impression right now. Feynman was certainly the youngest group member in the theoretical division-Ashujo
The full paragraph is: "When Robert Oppenheimer's secret centralized laboratory for war research on the atomic bomb—Los Alamos—opened in 1943, Wilson was appointed as head of the Cyclotron Group (R-1) by Oppenheimer. Only in his late twenties, he was the youngest group leader at the site." That is, when he arrived/was appointed, he was the youngest group leader at the site, I'm fairly sure. Anyway, if you want to find some other way to say this (if we add "youngest group leader in the experimental division," that would probably work, though sounds overqualified), feel free. I don't care too much either way, honestly. --Fastfission 17:05, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)
There's a 2002 video interview with Joseph Rotblat where he mentions him and Wilson ordering a hairdresser's chair as a joke to see how efficient the Project's procurement machine was. The rather complicated and cumbersome chair arrived three days after ordering and he and Wilson then had the job of explaining it's rather incongruous presence to General Groves. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:04, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
