The physicists and the Bomb

物理学家和炸弹


For this forum debate, put yourself in the mindset of a junior physicist working on bomb calculations at Los Alamos in December 1944. You have just heard, through a friend who works with General Groves, that it is known with great certainty that the German bomb project was a dud. Would you have stayed on at the lab? Draw upon the lectures and the readings, and be specific about the considerations that you would need to take into account in making your decision. Avoid anachronisms.

 这个论坛的辩论,把自己放在一个少年的物理学家的心态,1944年12月在洛斯阿拉莫斯炸弹计算的工作。你刚才听到的,通过与格罗夫斯将军一起工作的一个朋友,这是已知的具有很大的确定性,德国的原子弹计划是无用的。你会留在实验室吗?利用演讲和阅读材料,明确你在做出决定时需要考虑的因素。避免错误。
