Arms & the Physicist: An Eyewitness Report on a Half Century of Nuclear-Age Drama
Herbert F. York. At the age of 21, York was swept into the century’s most daring & dangerous technical achievement, the making of the atomic bomb. During his 50-year career as scientist & statesman, York was in the midst of the controversy. York takes us backstage to witness key events of our time: to the Manhattan Project for the birth of the atomic bomb; to Lawrence Livermore Lab. where the H-bomb was built; to Wash., D.C., to eavesdrop on how post-war history was being forged; & to Geneva where he tried to stem the madness. Along the way, you’ll meet some of our greatest heroes & villains -- Lawrence, Oppenheimer, Weisskopf, Teller, Gen. Groves, Pres. Eisenhower, & a cast of hundreds who for more than a century held the fate of the world in their hands.
