Über diesen Titel


Reveals the world and work of the physicists and mathematicians of California's Livermore Lab, focusing on their endeavors to achieve breakthroughs that would make "star wars" weaponry a reality

From Library Journal:

Broad, New York Times science writer, spent a week in May 1984 at the Livermore Laboratory in California, the nuclear facility that inspired President Reagan's Star Wars proposal. His interviews with the young scientists who are pioneering x-ray lasers, particle beams, and supercomputers provide the basis for his conclusions. He discovered a technological free-for-all where the researchers do not always appreciate the military application of their creations. If they do, they assume that their efforts will provide a technical fix to the arms race. Political solutions become secondary. Broad also confirms the fears of many, finding that Star Wars cannot provide a 100-percent leakproof defensive shield and that, therefore, it will lead to a renewed arms race. A timely book, highly recommended. Dennis Felbel, Univ. of Manitoba Libs., Winnipeg
