Abstract

Marking the seventieth anniversary of the Los Alamos Laboratory provides an opportunity for comparison with its Soviet counterpart, Arzamas-16 (nicknamed "Los Arzamas"). There were similarities and differences, but in their principal motivations and treatments of their scientists, they diverged irrevocably. This Editorial is based on an invited presentation on June 12, 2013, at the Norris E. Bradbury Science Museum, Los Alamos National Laboratory, in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
