Riassunto: The story of Edward Teller is the story of the 20th century. Born in Hungary in 1908, Teller witnesses the rise of Nazism and anti-Semitism, two world wars, the McCarthy era, and the changing face of big science. Edward Teller tells of the people, events, and ideas that shaped him as a scientist, beginning with his early love of music and maths, and continuing with his study of quantum physics with Werner Heisenberg. Present at many of the pivotal moments in modern science, he describes his friendships with some of the century's greatest minds - Einstein, Bohr, Fermi, Szilard, von Neumann, Oppenheimer - and offers an account of the development of atomic and hydrogen bombs. He also offers a portait of his childhood, his marriage and family life, and his friendship with physicist Maria Mayer.
L'autore: Edward Teller is one of the most celebrated and controversial physicists alive today. Through his work at Los Alamos and his development of the hydrogen bomb, he helped usher in the atomic age. He is currently Director Emeritus of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and continues as a Senior Research Fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. Wendy Teller is a computer scientist, specializing in software for telecommunications. Wilson Talley is currently a professor in the Department of Applied Sciences, University of California Davis/ Livermore, and is president of the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation.
