If Your Mountain Is Not in the Right Place

A while back I mentioned Project Chariot -- a late-1950s proposal to carve out a harbor in an Alaskan town using nuclear weapons. Eli Kintisch's book mentions that Edward Teller told reporters, before he flew up to the site:
"If your mountain is not in the right place, drop us a card."
Teller certainly knew how to get attention.
