75 Years after Hiroshima: A Physicist Reflects
The August 1945 attacks that devastated Hiroshima and Nagasaki came just seven years after physicists learned uranium fission was possible.
Bill Higgins, who works as a radiation safety physicist at Fermilab, has long been active in science fiction fandom. He has published an account of the friendship between Robert A. Cornog, a Manhattan Project physicist, and the author Robert A. Heinlein. He has also investigated how antimatter became a plaything of SF in the 1930s and 1940s.
