Farben director Carl Krauch assigned one of its top Buna synthetic rubber experts, Otto Ambros, to investigate the sites for the proposed plant and make a recommendation. For this we should be prepared to wait until there is a good weather forecast in one or more of three alternative targets.

In the case of the Little Boy the situation is considerably more complicated since water leaking into the Little boy will set off a nuclear reaction, and since the American held territory in the vicinity of the base is so densely filled that no suitable jettisoning ground for the Little Boy has been found which is sufficiently devoid of moisture, which is sufficiently soft that the projectile is sure not to seat from the impact, and which is sufficiently remote from extremely important American installations whose damage by a nuclear explosion would seriously affect the American war effort.

Scientists still track health fallout of nuclear bombing of Japan

We should feel the pain of the African-American community, personally. Some malign influence seemed to be affecting the entire operation" to such an extent that Farben appeared to be faced with the first failure in its long corporate history of technological success.

The letter looked ahead to the possible international control of nuclear weapons by the United Nations.

However, due to the greater duration of the blast in our case, the safe height will probably be somewhat greater. Apparently, however, not everything could be told in But the production of plutonium could only be achieved in the construction of a functioning reactor.
