Neils Bohr, probably the world's foremost expert on atomic structure, was in Copenhagen. Heisenberg visited Bohr and made some effort to lure him to work in the German nuclear program, but it was probably half-hearted as Heisenberg himself was not completely sold on the idea.

The biggest prize was the Vemork plant in Telemark, Norway, the only plant in the world producing heavy water in commercial quantities. The German government had already offered to buy the entire production of the plant when the French secret service beat them to the punch.
