About this title

Synopsis:

The midtwentieth century exploded with innovation and invention, introducing space exploration, nuclear power, and computers. In Rockets, Reactors, and Computers Define the Twentieth Century, Charles L. Bradshaw recalls his days as a rocket scientist and computer pioneer working with worldrenowned scientific geniuses. Successfully mixing anecdotal and technical information, he recalls with vivid detail the space race, the birth of the atomic bomb, and the evolution of the modern computer.

Bradshaw provides a personal glimpse into legendary events and figures such as Werner von Braun and his team of expatriate German rocket scientists; the employment of the Redstone missile to launch the first U.S. satellite into space; and the birth and growth of the computer industry. With intimate insight, Bradshaw not only engages the reader with his fascinating memoir, but explains the mathematics and science behind important historical events in modern science.
