an adventure in atomic energy


Randy Morrow, the central character in THERE'S ADVENTURE IN ATOMIC ENERGY, is an average American boy in his early teens. His father is a writer of science books, and step by step he introduces Randy to the mysteries and wonders of the world of the atom. Perhaps the greatest of the new sciences is the development and control of atomic energy. As Randy finds out, here is the fuel to power the industries of the world by the time he has become a man. Here, too, maybe the power that will someday take them to the stars. Randy learns some of the atom's supreme powers by simple experiments that any reader of this book can perform, too.
