I have a question for you from the communist world : do you really think that atomic energy would have been possible without some "academic fools without any real world experience" like Marie Curie working on it ? Do you really think that companies would have spent a single cent and offered a single square meter of lab for studying dull pechblende rocks, in their world of shareholders and their cult of economic growth ?
