This article focuses on the results of the scientific congress in Geneva, Switzerland. For it is the consensus of scientists departing from Geneva that the most remarkable feature of the meeting was its relevation that in the matter of developing atomic energy for peaceful uses all the nations reporting are at approximately the same stage. It was agreed that the U.S. presented some really novel ideas relative to the construction of large reactors, and that the Russians presented some new things relative to small ones. But for the rest everybody had achieved pretty much the same successes and suffered pretty much the same failures; although nobody knew it until this meeting revealed the fact.
