    PDF/EPUB James Mahaffey ´ Atomic Adventures ePUB ê ´ atomic epub, adventures kindle, Atomic Adventures KindleJames Mahaffey is a good writer and has an eye for oddball anecdotes He gets carried away with the details sometimes and the text can be technically dense I like his discursive techie voice He's fond of tiny print footnotes; some have a hidden nugget or two I’m the intended audience and the book mostly clicked for me Solid 4 stars overall; 5 when he's cookin'If I were you I'd skim the antiue N ray stuff Introduction very lightly especially if you're already familiar with this fine demo of Feynman's maxim that the easiest person to fool is yourselfChapter 1 relates Ronald Richter's fusion power boondoggle in Argentina which he sold to Juan Peron as a vanity project Richter burned through the euivalent of 300 million in today's money in 4 years 1948 52 Basis was a laboratory curiosity for inducing a bit of fusion with a powerful electric arc You do get some fusion that way

    PDF/EPUB James Mahaffey ´ Atomic Adventures ePUB ê ´ atomic epub, adventures kindle, Atomic Adventures KindleWhile I loved Atomic Accidents A History of Nuclear Meltdowns and Disasters From the Ozark Mountains to Fukushima I'm having a hard time getting into this one Trying to figure out why it's a little bit textbook y and I'm not really sure what thread is holding the whole thing together The text is full of rabbit trails and while the footnotes are fun they're another layer of rabbit trails off of that Or maybe it's just the wrong time who knows Sigh

    PDF/EPUB James Mahaffey ´ Atomic Adventures ePUB ê ´ atomic epub, adventures kindle, Atomic Adventures KindleJames Mahaffey is former senior research scientist in nuclear physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology who as he says near the end of this book now writes books If you enjoy geeks geeking on about what they love and I very much do his books are a lot of funThis one is about some of the wilder and woollier adventures in atomic energy bombs scientific frauds and all the things that make a life in science a lot exciting than someone thinking of it only as you know science might reasonably assumeStories include Ronald Richter selling Juan Per

    PDF/EPUB James Mahaffey ´ Atomic Adventures ePUB ê ´ atomic epub, adventures kindle, Atomic Adventures KindleNot as much fun as his book on atomic accidents not as many stories of people doing dumb things with plutonium but good nonetheless The chapter on radionucleides as murder weapons was crazy stuff

    PDF/EPUB James Mahaffey ´ Atomic Adventures ePUB ê ´ atomic epub, adventures kindle, Atomic Adventures KindleThis like his previous book Atomic Accidents is a fun read Mahaffey does a very good job of translating hard to imagine nuclear concepts into plain English yet he also leaves enough details so that someone with a nuclear background will also enjoy it This time the book focuses on the crazy ideas that were attempted using atomic power The creation of death rays and imaginative and sometimes imaginary ways to make power from the atom It also spends a long time on the idea of cold fusion power The author Mahaffey even played a personal part in that story One of my most favorite parts provides the most likely answer to the Roswell flying saucer crash I have ever read I am surprised I had never heard it before bu
