My Current Total Immersion In ‘Radioactivity’.

by Anura Guruge



Despite my age, I am still fascinated & intrigued by many aspects of science. Stuff I didn’t get a chance to pursue when I was busy with my career. Now that I have a bit more time I kind of feel that I should make up for lost time.

In a way, again given my age, I grew up in the ‘Space & Nuclear’ AGE. Exciting times. True ‘Chernobyl‘ happened much later BUT I remember the news of the various atomic bomb tests in the 1950s & 1960s.

I am no stranger to the ‘Manhattan Project’. Over the years I have read a few books on the subject & had some familiarity with Oppenheimer & Groves. But, the book I am listening to is giving me a ton more insights & perspectives. Some of it was kind of ‘dry’ BUT it, understandably, got more gripping as the bombs came to fruition.

The Chernobyl book has proved to be an absolute PAGE TURNER. I know the story & the ending BUT reading the details.

I will definitely recommend BOTH. No question. Enjoy.

Should NOT be too difficult to work out what it is all about NOW that I have given you the RIGHT term: cow patty.

Clever. I certainly have never heard of it. I somehow have a feeling that we did NOT come up with it. Very good reason: we are not really a cow state?

Maybe somebody will elucidate I.

Enjoy.

Think about it. It could be a very time consuming game. Not sure whether you are allowed to use cow laxative?
