It's almost incredible to think that, when construction on the production complex began, the only reactor which had ever operated was CP-1 at a thermal power of ten watts or less, & the quantities of plutonium which had been separated were still microscopic. It would be like, I don't know, going from the first transistor to the 8086 or Z80 microprocessor in 18 months!
