Heated discussion on nuclear history

Best Museum: Atomic Testing Museum

Remember your roots! We’re smack-dab in the middle of nuclear history here, sitting adjacent to the Test Site and always seeming this close to Armageddon. Have a little wine and cheese and listen to experts discuss the history of the nuclear age at the Atomic Testing Museum on Tuesday.


Lecture on the history of the nuclear age
Tuesday, January 12, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Atomic Testing Museum

Panelists include George Mason University professor Dr. Martin Sherwin, author of A World Destroyed: Hiroshima and Its Legacies and American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer; Sacramento City College chemist Dr. Ruth Lewin Sime, author of Lise Meitner: A Life in Physics; and Dr. Mary Palevsky, a visiting scholar in UNLV’s Department of History from 2003-2008, who directed the Nevada Test Site Oral History Project. The discussion is titled, “From Splitting the Atom to the Cuban Missile Crisis: Writing the First Quarter-Century of the Nuclear Age” and promises to be ... hot.
