Published on the 50th anniversary of the discovery of nuclear fission, this volume collects the reminiscences of some of the pioneers of the nuclear age under one cover. Based on addresses delivered at a special symposium sponsored by the American Nuclear Society, these trailblazers recount, in their own words, milestones in the development of nuclear energy. Among them are the discovery of fission and proof of sustainability of a chain reaction, the history behind the building of the Stagg Field Reactor, the origins and management of the Manhattan Project, and the development of nuclear energy for electricity generation at the Shippingport plant. This book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the origins of nuclear technology, the personalities involved, and the political and historical realities of the times.
