Excerpt
Excerpt: When the Los Alamos Science staff began this volume last September, we perceived it as a great challenge. What aspects would best represent the Laboratory on its fiftieth birthday? The accomplishment of the Manhattan Project and the great scientists who made it succeed inspire all those who come to Los Alamos. That work, those times, that spirit have been superbly documented in Richard Rhodes’s Making of the Atomic Bomb. The equally extraordinary efforts to build thermonuclear devices, the early efforts to harness the energy of fission and fusion for peaceful uses, and the evolution of the Laboratory into a multipurpose scientific institution were the primary focus of the 1983 issue of Los Alamos Science on the occasion of the Laboratory’s fortieth anniversary. At that time, many of the great scientists who took part in the Manhattan Project were alive and able to return to Los Alamos to recall for us the birth of the nuclear age.
