Just Finished–The Age of Radiance: The Epic Rise and Dramatic Fall of the Atomic Era

18144088Just finished reading Craig Nelson’s The Age of Radiance: The Epic Rise and Dramatic Fall of the Atomic Era, which deals with the evolution of all things atomic, from the Curies to the Manhattan Project, the unbelievable number of nuke tests from the 1950s through the 1980s, all the way up to the disasters at Chernobyl and Fukushima, also featuring the scads of twitchy, bomb-obsessed dudes in between, not to mention the real-life Dr. Strangelove, Edward Teller.

It’s truly amazing that we survived.
