Dear Ahmad & Franz:
I grew-up reading George Gamow's brilliant "Mr. Tompkins in Wonderland" and
"Mr. Tompkins Explores the Atom". My copies have my early artistic attempts
in crayon. My dad placed them on the bedside table when I was 6 or 7 years
old. I must have read those books 100 times!
"Mr Tompkins has become known and loved by many thousands of readers (since
his first appearance over seventy years ago) as the bank clerk whose
fantastic dreams and adventures lead him into a world inside the atom.
George Gamow's classic provides a delightful explanation of the central
concepts in modern physics, from atomic structure to relativity, and quantum
theory to fusion and fission. Roger Penrose's new foreword introduces Mr
Tompkins to a new generation of readers, and reviews his adventures in the
light of current developments in physics today."
They make dandy Winter Solstice presents!
I gave my daughters copies of these great books when they were old enough to
P.S. Franz - Did the Krampus come to Vienna yesterday? Did you get a lump

Eloquently said indeed, particularly when the issue is put for public voting
these days. A vote is a vote, and we, the "Know It All" people, are not that
many to tip the voting results one way or another.
We, again the "Know it All'ers", have failed miserably in simplifying the
facts about anything radiation and nuclear, so that the topic becomes a
public knowledge, enough to gain an educated vote, rather than keeping the
science for experts only.
Unfortunately, we inherited a bad habit of keeping things for ourselves, as
most of the work done by the nuclear pioneers was in clandestine nuclear
projects, Manhattan to name the "worst" example.

>Franz, indeed that is so. My impression is that much of the anti nuclear
power sentiments are successfully promulgated because of the lack of
scientific input in the education of many youngsters. Much of this is due
to misdirected governmental influences as discussed by Leslie Corrice, whose
experiences as he discusses are primarily in the U.S. My hope is that
scientific professionals would be more vocal, not within Radsafe, but within
lay persons' venues, after contemplating Leslie Corrice's presentations.
