In a way, nuclear energy has been serving man as long as he has existed. It has served all of life; it has flooded the earth for billions of years. The sun, you see, is a vast nuclear engine, and the warmth and light that the sun radiates is the product of nuclear energy.
In order for man to learn to produce and control nuclear energy himself, however (something that did not take place until this century), three lines of investigation--atoms, electricity, and energy--had to develop and meet.

This edition contains volumes I, II, & II, is fully illustrated, and has been formatted for your NOOK reader.
