Chrysler and the military: The nuclear bomb

diffuserThe nuclear bomb decisively ended World War II, which otherwise would likely have been a bloody island-by-island slugfest.

Without Chrysler, there would have been no atomic bomb in time to end the war. Experts believed that uranium enrichment diffusers had to be made of solid nickel — more nickel than the US could get in two years, if they made nothing else from the metal. Chrysler had to badger officials into testing their theory that electroplating cast iron would work — and it did. Their diffusers were finally retired in 1985, mainly because another company had failed to seal them properly. Full story.
