Splitting the AtomBook - 2005
This fabulous new series takes key scientific developments from the last century and investigates how they came about, their creation or discovery, and their long-term effects. Each book places the development in the context of its time, to increase awareness of some of the amazing discoveries that have helped to shape the world today, and the key people behind each of these scientific milestones. Splitting the Atom investigates the theories and practical developments that led to the turning-point in nuclear science - the realisation that splitting the nucleus of an atom created energy that could be harnessed, for good and for ill.
