The Atomic Age is credited mostly to men like Einstein, Oppenheimer and Fermi. Although there’s no question that these eminent scientists were leaders in the development and understanding of nuclear power, there were also many women who contributed knowledge and sometimes their health and lives, but who are overshadowed by the men. We talk to two authors whose books give these women the recognition they deserve.
- Craig Nelson, author of The Age of Radiance: The epic rise and dramatic fall of the Atomic Era
- Denise Kiernan, author of the best-selling book, The Girls of Atomic City now in paperback
