While I was in the US Navy, Glasstone's Sourcebook on atomic energy was the basis for one of many excellent and interesting correspondence courses that I completed. The book is laid out like the Bible and, I presume, intended for convenient citation and Reviews: 5.

I read this book based upon a recommendation in the Wall Street Journal and was not disappointed. The author covers the evolution from wood to coal to steam to electricity to nuclear and does a pretty good job of looking at the upsides and downsides of each.

Each energy source has done some harm but lots of good/5(). Sources of Information on Atomic Energy is a guide to available literature on atomic energy and to the organizations which originate atomic energy information.

The book opens with a chapter that describes, in fairly simple terms, the various aspects of atomic energy and to show how they are related to each other and to other technologies.

It is about the creation of Oak Ridge, Tennessee - a city created to produce the first atomic bombs' fuel source. This book not only follows the historical facts surrounding the creation of this fuel source but also the creation of the city where the people employed to do the firs/5.

The Girls of Atomic City brings to light a forgotten chapter in our history that combines a vivid, novelistic story with often troubling science.” -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution “The image of Rosie the Riveter — women filling in at factories to help the war effort — is well known.

But women also assisted on the Manhattan Project Reviews: K. Atomic Energy publishes papers and review articles dealing with the latest developments in the peaceful uses of atomic energy. Topics include nuclear chemistry and physics, plasma physics, accelerator characteristics, reactor economics and engineering, applications of isotopes, and radiation monitoring and safety.

Independence Ave., S.W. Washington, DC Phone: Media Inquiries:   The Atomic City Girls often struggles with emphasizing the important over the mundane.

It gives an entire chapter over to describing a trip home for a Christmas celebration, and several pages to a loose kitchen in the house, but very little space to addressing crucial components of the story, such as who June or Sam are as unique characters.

Step Inside The Creepy, Abandoned Town Of Atomic City In Idaho.

A t the heart of the sprawling Indian Point Energy Center, 30 miles up the Hudson River from Manhattan, stands a modest, oblate structure easy to overlook at first glance.

The plant’s massive, torpedo-shaped containment domes, which shelter Indian Point’s two active nuclear reactors, dominate the skyline. But the smallish, squat dome in the middle of the complex, its gray concrete streaked. This is a list of books about nuclear issues.

Research and development efforts led to the deployment of the first nuclear power plants. This chapter ends by addressing the controversies surrounding nuclear energy in the late twentieth century.

On 60, acres of farmland framed by the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, it was one of the United States’ three secret cities—remote sites chosen by Manhattan Project director Gen. Leslie Groves, evacuated of their civilian inhabitants, and developed for the specific purpose of producing an atomic.

If a carbon atom has six protons in its nucleus, its atomic number is 6. If it also has six neutrons in the nucleus, then the mass number is 6 + 6, or If the atomic number of uranium is 92, then that is the number of protons in the nucleus.

Because the mass number isthen the number of neutrons in the nucleus is − 92, or The power to manipulate matter at the atomic level.
