Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the first controlled nuclear chain reaction, this book discusses in clearly written language the events that led up to that historical event, the scientific basis for nuclear energy and its various peaceful applications (power, industrial uses, medicine), the development of nuclear power worldwide, and the future of nuclear energy. This is the book that was distributed at the 1992 ANS Meeting in Chicago. It's a must for anyone who wants to know the history, the people, and the science behind nuclear energy.
