Called “one of our best science popularizers” by Publishers Weekly, Amir Aczel now tackles the cause of one of the last century’s most destructive events — the scientific discovery of nuclear power. Drawing on his rich storytelling skills, Aczel presents the fascinating and suspenseful story of the scientists who first uncovered the potential of uranium.
Uranium Wars takes the listener on a whirlwind tour of 1920s Europe, where the scientific elite of the day were embroiled in a fierce rivalry to achieve nuclear fission. Leading us to an understanding of both the processes that take place inside a uranium nucleus and its destructive power are the brilliant men and women at the heart of the race: mammoth figures, such as Marie Curie, Enrico Fermi, and Lise Meitner.
Enmeshed in the story of scientific intrigue is the complex and ongoing story of uranium itself, which Aczel presents as a dynamic, dual natured force, capable of providing both abundant usable energy and generating unfathomable destructive power.
