A gripping narrative
of nuclear mishaps and meltdowns around the globe, all of which have proven pivotal
to the advancement of nuclear science
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 led to new facets of 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.
