Peaceful Uses of the Atom
AbstractThe purpose of this lecture is to give an impression of the main characteristic feature of Plowshare: its exceedingly wide applicability throughout fields of economic or scientific interest. If one wants to find the right applications, knowledge of the nuclear tool is not enough. One needs to have a thorough familiarity with the materials, with the processes, with all of science, with all the economics on our globe and maybe beyond. A survey is presented of all aspects of peaceful applications of nuclear explosives: earth moving, large-scale chemical and mining engineering, and scientific experiments. (D.L.C.)
