Beschreibung

From the moment radiation was discovered in the late nineteenth century, nuclear science has had a rich history of innovative scientific exploration and discovery, coupled with mistakes, accidents, and downright disasters.
Mahaffey, a long-time advocate of continued nuclear research and nuclear energy, looks at each incident in turn and analyzes what happened and why, often discovering where scientists went wrong when analyzing past meltdowns.
Every incident has lead to new facets in understanding about the mighty atom - and Mahaffey puts forth what the future should be for this final frontier of science that still holds so much promise.

Most extensive report on nuclear accidents

I can't even start to imagine how much work has gone into this. It is the most extensive report on nuclear accidents that I am aware of and covery basically everything from the very dawn of the nuclear age, up until Fukushima. It is very rich in technical details, and very objective when it comes to putting everything in perspective. The author definitely knows his stuff, and the narrator did a great job given that this is such a "dry" topic.
