Celebrate the history of nuclear technology with this special reprinting of 50 Years with Nuclear Fission. The 75th anniversary in 2013 of fission's discovery has been marked by this diamond anniversary edition, reproducing the proceedings from the 1989 ANS topical conference covering the first 50 years following the discovery. About 20 pioneers of the nuclear enterprise—including Alvin Weinberg, Pavle Savic, Glenn Seaborg, Edward Teller, John Wheeler, Chauncey Starr, and Walter Zinn—attended the conference and wrote papers for the proceedings.
