K-25 FACT
OF THE DAY

“K-25” is a codename made up of a combination of other codes. The letter “K” comes from “Kellex”, M.W. Kellogg’s (the lead engineer) codename, “Kell” for Kellogg, and “X” for secret. The number “25” is a World War II-era code designated for the element called uranium-235, the concentrated product of the gaseous diffusion process.
