The Curve of Binding Energy
by John McPhee
Focusing on the ideas and work of Theodore B. Taylor, a veteran designer from the Los Alamos weapons programs and driving force behind the 1950s Project Orion, conceived as launching thousands-of-tons payload capacity spacecraft by means of nuclear detonations. In his later years, Taylor became increasingly concerned by the specter of weapons construction by irresponsible individuals and groups. The book provides a rich source of facts and figure with regard to such possibilities, from one widely held to be one of the most brilliant innovators in the weapons development field.
