50 Years with Nuclear Fission

La Grance Park, IL: American Nuclear Society, 1989. First? Edition. First? Printing. 978 total, 2-vol. set, illus., references, index, boards slightly worn and soiled. The results of an international conference held at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, Maryland, held April 25-28, 1989. The conference was sponsored by NIST and the American Nuclear Society. The objective of the meeting was to bring together pioneers of the nuclear industry and other scientists and engineers to report on reminiscences of the past and on the more recent developments in fission science and technology. This two-volume work is increasingly rare, and many of the pioneers whose reminiscences were captured at the conference have returned to a different form of matter. Condition: very good.
