colin_faber writes “Lewis Page of the Register is reporting that forensic nuclear scientists at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre traced the two pieces of metal found in a Dutch scrapyard — described as a cube and a plate — back to their exact origins and dates. Apparently both came from ores extracted at the ‘Joachimsthal’ mine in what is now the Czech Republic from the former Nazi nuclear-weapons programme of the 1940s.” The article runs through the roadblocks that, unknown to the Allies, the Nazi regime erected against their possible success in any nuclear bomb development during the war.
