"Invention" does not typically require the physical realization of the invented thing, nor a working model according to patent law. A patent for an atomic bomb was awarded to Leo Szilard in 1934. That patent is regarded as the invention of the atomic bomb. He immediately tried to turn the patent over to the British government as a gift. He was attempting to restrict the availability of the bomb. On October 8, 1935 the British War Office rejected the offer. Later, in February 1936 the British Admiralty accepted the gift.
